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.
