According to complaint, Kamath objected to Bosch's demand.

In response, the complaint alleges that Bosch informed Kamath that, if he did not sign a form declaration promising to pay Bosch the full amount of his tax refunds, Bosch would fire him and require him to return to India.

Bosch managers allegedly threatened Kamath, stating, "We will make sure that your career is destroyed and you will not be able to find a job anywhere. We will make your life miserable if you don't sign [the declaration promising to pay back to Bosch the tax refunds you received]."

Following Kamath's refusal to comply with Bosch's demand, Bosch required Kamath to return to India in May 2013, even though his visa was valid until March 1, 2014. In addition, Bosch refused to pay Kamath a performance pay amount that Bosch owes him for his work in 2012.

Other Bosch employees who complied with Bosch's coercive tactics have had the tax refund amounts taken by Bosch through payroll deductions, the complaint alleged.

There was no immediate reaction from Bosch.
