An Indian technology company has settled allegations that it discriminated against White applicants in favour of Asians by paying back wages and agreeing to meet legal non-discrimination requirements, according to the federal Labour Department.

Mphasis, which has federal contracts, will pay $171,300 in lost wages to those alleging discrimination to resolve the allegations, the department said in July.

Jane Suhr, an official in-charge of federal contract compliance, said: “Federal contractors are required to provide equal employment opportunity to all applicants regardless of race and ethnicity.”

Mphasis agreed to extend job opportunities to 14 persons affected by the alleged discrimination and to take steps to ensure its personnel practices meet all legal requirements, the Labour Department said.
