Carrier will now offer severance or guarantee two years of comparable pay at Infosys

Verizon Communications Inc. on Thursday changed the exit package offered to about 1,000 of its U.S. workers who were set to move to outsourcing giant Infosys Ltd.

After telling those information-technology workers in late September that they weren’t eligible for severance, the wireless carrier is now giving them the option of taking the exit package or moving to Infosys with a guarantee of comparable pay and benefits for two years.
