Infosys to settle US visa fraud case for $34M
 

 
NOMAAN MERCHANT, Associated Press
 
PLANO, Texas (AP) — Federal authorities say the $34 million settlement it reached with Indian technology outsourcing giant Infosys fixes "systemic issues" targeted in a major visa fraud and immigration abuse case.
 
Infosys said Wednesday that it agreed to settle the case following a two-year federal investigation.
 
Infosys had been under investigation for using short-term B-1 visas to bring thousands of workers to the United States instead of the more expensive, long-term H1-B visa.
 
An Infosys consultant flagged what he said was an illegal practice and later filed a whistleblower lawsuit against the company, which was dismissed.
John M. Bales, the U.S. attorney for Texas' eastern district, said the settlement will require Infosys to change its visa practices.
 
Infosys said in a statement that it denies "any claims of systemic visa fraud."
