The US Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced that it reached an agreement with a computer consulting company in Georgia where the company will pay approximately $1 million in back wages and interest to 135 H-1B workers as part of a DOL H-1B investigation. The DOL stated that it had determined that the company violated the H-1B program’s regulations because it determined that some employees were not paid any wages at the beginning of their employment, or paid on a part-time basis despite being hired under full-time employment, and were paid less than the applicable prevailing wage in the location where they were working.

"The newsfeeds deliver us the most recent legal analysis and practical information. There seems to be a broad analysis which is beneficial to us in analyzing various areas of law. It provides a snap shot update of various legal developments and assists us in staying current. The articles are well covered and include the right amount of detail. The size and depth of articles are good too, so we can get to the information one needs very quickly. The articles are typically of high calibre and from high-calibre authors who provide sufficiently succinct articles so that one can learn much about new developments in a short amount of time. I like the format because it is easy to scan for relevant articles. It's a great tool. I like the fact you can tailor the newsfeeds by jurisdiction and work area, and only receive information relevant to your practice."
