Fresh sexual harassment suit against USA’s iGATE

US-based outsourcing firm iGATE has been slapped with yet another sexual harassment suit by an ex-employee, claiming that she was sexually abused by the firm's Legal Head and her supervisor.

Karetha Dodd, a US national, has sued iGATE and her supervisor Mukund Srinath on charges of sexual harassment at the US District Court for the Northern District of California in September
last year. Dodd has also alleged that she was targeted at iGATE after she testified against its then CEO Phaneesh Murthy who was accused of sexually harassing Investor Relations Head Araceli Roiz.

In her complaint, Dodd has alleged that “she was subjected to harassing behaviour by her superior (Srinath) and when Plaintiff (Dodd) refused to have a sexual relationship with him, he retaliated by taking negative employment actions against her.” According to her LinkedIn profile, Dodd worked at iGATE as Vice President and Head of Legal (Americas) and resigned in August 2013.
