IT and outsourcing giant Infosys has agreed to pay USD1m to resolve its visa violation case in New York. The city’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Infosys has agreed to pay the amount to resolve claims that it routinely brought foreign IT personnel into New York to perform work in violation of the terms of their visas. The company was accused of obtaining B-1 visas instead of the H-1B work permit for its employees. While it agreed to pay USD1m, Infosys reportedly maintained that it committed no wrongdoing and that the investigation was centered on alleged paperwork errors.
