Infosys whistleblower files complaint against firm

The whistleblower who helped trigger a federal investigation into visa practices by the outsourcing firm Infosys has filed a new complaint against the company, saying it continues to retaliate against him.

Mark Griffin, an attorney for former Infosys employee Jay Palmer, confirmed Tuesday he has filed a claim with the Department of Labor. Palmer says he just wants his job back.

The India-based firm says in an emailed statement that Palmer's complaint rehashes issues a federal court in Alabama dismissed in 2012, and that Palmer resigned and released Infosys from his claims.

Last year, Infosys agreed to a record $34 million settlement with the U.S. Justice Department over allegations it misused short-term business visas to bring in temporary tech workers. Prosecutors said Infosys hired the workers out to corporate clients, claims Palmer previously made.
