The case between software major Infosys and Jack Palmer, its employee the US, will go on trial next month as mediation talks between the two failed, reports said.
It all started in February last year, when Jack Palmer, a principal consultant with Infosys since 2008, filed a case against Infosys in an Alabama state court last year, and accused the company of seeking his help to evade H1-B visa rules by sending unskilled employees to the US on short-term B1 business visas.
Foreign companies need H1-B visas to send their employees to the US for short-term business purposes.
Palmer has also accused Infosys managers of mistreating him when he filed a complaint last year as a part of the company's whistle blower policy.
While Infosys denies any wrongdoing, Palmers lawyer Kenneth Mendelsohn has maintained that he will want Infosys to admit to wrongdoing.
