Immigration practitioners have seen an uptick in U.S. Department of Labor ("DOL") investigations, relating primarily to wage issues. As you know, the H-1B employer attests that it will pay the employee the "prevailing wage" or the actual wage, whichever is higher. The DOL is looking at the components of this wage calculation, particularly when the employee is intermittently in the United States or on foreign payroll. We have also seen an increase in demand letters, class action lawsuits and RICO cases largely related to H-1B wage issues. Please review your practices and processes to ensure you are in compliance.
