The poaching dispute has escalated as major IT player Infosys charges Cognizant, another IT company, of using unethical poaching practices. After a few of its senior leaders left to join the company, Infosys reportedly sent a written communication to Cognizant, according to a Moneycontrol report that cited at least three people familiar with the development.

The similar claim made by Infosys’ competitor Wipro, which has filed lawsuits against two of its former executives for joining Nasdaq-listed Cognizant, precedes Infosys’ accusation.

As per the Moneycontrol report, one of the sources stated, “This communication to Cognizant was more of a deterrent but non-compete clauses are not enforceable.”
According to an additional source, Infosys sent the communication a few weeks prior.

Ravi Kumar, the CEO of Cognizant, assumed leadership in January of this year. About twenty executive vice presidents and four senior vice presidents, including employees of Wipro and Infosys, have been hired by him. Previously, he worked for Infosys.
