  • Following a visa fraud investigation carried out jointly by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Infosys Limited, a Bangalore-based IT services company operating in over 30 countries, has agreed to pay $34,000,000 to settle allegations of the improper use of B-1 business visitor visas and Form I-9 violations in connection with the hire of foreign workers. As part of the settlement agreement, Infosys also agreed to undergo independent auditing of the company's I-9 forms and to report future B-1 visa usage. The investigation was prompted by a lawsuit filed by a former Infosys employee.
