Araceli Roiz to take Murthy,iGate to court   Leave a comment

Sexual Harassment Case Against Phaneesh 

In this way,Murthy was able to induce Roiz into behaviour and action that she would have found unthinkable at the beginning of her employment, it said.
The law firm said Murthy began pursuing Roiz shortly after her employment began in 2010,and not,as Murthy had said in his press conference on Tuesday,that it began only a few months ago.
The firm said that the only reason Murthy was able to engage in these abusive and harassing actions was because he was Roizs employer.The CEO of any company,as Mr Murthy was here,has tremendous economic and personal power over his subordinates.Thus,Ms Roiz was dependent on her continued employment for her basic living expenses and,further,Mr Murthy conditioned her further employment and career advancement opportunities on her entering into a relationship with him which,eventually and reluctantly,she did.When she tried to extricate herself from the relationship,he reduced her responsibilities,threatened her continued employment,and pressured her to continue the relationship, the release said.
The law firm said that it would be taking court action against iGate too.Under California law,because Mr Murthy was an officer and director of iGate,his actions were the actions of iGate,and iGate,too,is liable for the acts of Mr Murthy.There remains the question of whether,given Mr Murthys history of predatory actions toward female employees,iGate did all that it should have done to oversee and control Mr Murthy and to provide some method for women at iGate to report his actions, it said.
The law firm took serious objection to Murthys comments that Roiz was engaging in extortion by bringing this case against him. Murthys comments are defamatory and a despicable attempt to `blame the victim,who only wants to somehow continue her career and support her child.


Murthy began pursuing Roiz shortly after her employment began in 2010.As a result of Murthys influence over Roiz,she continued the relationship with him and ultimately,Roiz became pregnant with Murthys child.When he discovered this,Murthy pressured Roiz to have an abortion.When Roiz refused to have an abortion,Murthy attempted to get her to leave the company and keep their relationship a secret.
