Oracle accused of discrimination: 25% lesser wages paid for Indians

Oracle accused of discrimination: 25% lesser wages paid for Indians

Oracle has been accused of wage discrimination, not just against Indian employees, but also other Asian and African American workers. The US Department of Labor has accused that US-based Oracle is paying as less as 25% for similarroles than white or non-Asians in the company.

It sounds contradictory as Oracle has always been in favor to hire Indians for many development roles, but still, they have been partial in paying wages to them. The African nationals and Hispanicsalso suffer such wage discrimination. “It impermissibly denies an equal employment opportunity to non-Asian applicants for employment, strongly preferring a workforce that it can later underpay. Once employed, women, Blacks,and Asians are systematically underpaid relative to their peers,” complained the office of the federal contract compliance programmes (OFCCP) of the US Department of Labor in its complaint. The accusation is against the Oracle office in the United States. The report refers to investigations done in headquarters in Redwood Shores.

Such an injustice is unjustifiable as Oracle is one of the oldest US firms to have its development centers in India. Any comment on the development has been denied by Oracle India.

As per the complaint, around $400 million wages have been lost by non-white employees between January 2013 and December 2016. The discrimination reportedly has affected more than 11,000 Asian employees.

Oracle had a programme to recruit engineers from campuses in India, it said.
