Ex-Oracle Manager Claims Firing Over Indian’s Pay Offer

A former Oracle Corp. senior sales manager sued the company alleging he was fired for complaining when he was told to offer an Indian worker he sought to transfer to California substantially lower pay than white workers in the same position.

Ian Spandow, who was a senior regional manager in database sales, claimed his December termination was in retaliation for his opposition to what he called a discriminatory practice “of paying Indian employees wages that are substantially lower than those paid to Caucasian employees,” according to a civil rights complaint filed Jan. 7 in federal court in San Francisco.
