Has Anyone Thought of the Possible Connection Between the Litigation and the Outsourcing


Forbes reports on a $600,000 settlement between a Japanese company and its staffing company in a suit brought by the EEOC on behalf of temporary Filipino employees who had been discharged, Forbes.com: Sega, Spherion settle U.S. ethnic bias case. What caught my eye was the following (my emphasis added):
The 18 plaintiffs had been temporary workers placed by Spherion in Sega's game-testing department. Ironically, those jobs were all outsourced to India within a year of the dismissals, EEOC attorney William Tamayo said.
Anyone but me wonder about the connection between the litigation and the outsourcing? Talk about irony!
