Infosys Is Being Forced to Face a New Reality

Don Tennant

Next week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be in India to co-chair the second U.S. India Strategic Dialogue. No one will be listening to that dialogue more intently than the executives at Infosys, the company that's being investigated by the State Department and other U.S. government agencies to determine whether it has engaged in criminal wrongdoing related to alleged visa fraud.

 

Last Friday, Robert O. Blake, Jr., the State Department's assistant secretary for South and Central Asian affairs, discussed the upcoming Strategic Dialogue in a live Web chat and took questions from Indian journalists. One of the journalists asked this question:

There are increasing reports of rejections of H-1B and L1 visas to Indians from Indian companies. Why is this happening? And will this be discussed during the dialogue?

Here's Blake's response:

I don't know if this will be discussed or not. I know this remains a high priority for Indians. Let me just say that we want to stress that India already is the overwhelmingly largest recipient of H-1B and L visas. It receives more than 40 percent of the total number of those visas that are issued worldwide. So I don't think we need to apologize for that and I'm a bit surprised to hear that there are large numbers of rejections because, again, India has been the largest beneficiary of this program and we think that, again, this has been something that's good for India and good for the United States.

How good it's been for the United States is debatable, of course, but what isn't open to question is the damage that's being done by visa fraud and abuse committed by some Indian companies, and by some U.S companies that use workers from India. So Clinton absolutely needs to raise the issue during the dialogue, and to reinforce what finally appears to be a steep decline in the U.S. government's tolerance for visa fraud and abuse.

 

That decline is juxtaposed against the steep ascent of the feds' aggressiveness in determining whether criminal charges should be filed against Infosys, and of Infosys' discomfort with that criminal investigation and with the civil suit filed by Infosys employee and whistleblower Jay Palmer.

 

That Infosys is feeling the heat is getting more obvious by the day. At a press conference in Bangalore on Saturday, K.V. Kamath, Infosys' incoming chairman, said this in response to a question about protectionism and visa rules:

Any country that does business in other countries needs to understand the laws of that country. You cannot use short cut methods to do business in other countries.

Anyone who thinks that would have been the response of a top Infosys executive six months ago, before Palmer filed his suit and triggered the feds' criminal investigation, is only fooling himself. Kamath, a veteran banker who in May was named to replace outgoing chairman Narayana Murthy when he steps down next month, has to deal with the fact that understanding-and following-the laws of the United States does not appear to have been a particularly high priority for Infosys over the years. What forced it to at least acknowledge those laws was the two-by-four-upside-the-head wake-up call it got when it realized it wasn't going to be able to make Palmer's allegations quietly go away.

The U.S. needs jobs, not outsourcing providers.

We need jobs so that we can avoid a default on the National Debt. Default on that, gas will hit 20$/gallon, and a lot of Republican truckers are gonna lose work.

No country on this earth would allow companies to use the Visa system as their single source for workers, except the United States.

It is ridiculous for the U.S. to allow Infosys to have a U.S. workforce that is 90% from India, to continue to utilize visa. And use those Visa to remove millions of U.S. jobs.

Infosys can't find U.S. workers, because they are not even trying to. It is much easier, and far cheaper, to bring in worker on a B-1 visa, and pay them sub-minimum wage, and pay no U.S. taxes. And that B-1, H-1b, and L-1 worker is on a leash, they can't switch jobs. Basically, anyone who supports the Visa system as it currently stands, supports slavery, and that is completely immoral.

Our Visa programs are a national disgrace.

I've am talking with the DOJ in regards to another major player and planning a new complaint based on statutes I've just become aware of.

We are starting to educate ourselves and speak with the right people. 

My strategy is shifting from a defensive posture (complaining about wrong doings) to more of an offensive posture in which remedies are sought and complaints are filed.  Based on the Infosys case it's clear that we can force change through either the USCIS, DOL, DOJ, and if those avenues fail through the courts.  The goal is of course to make violating the law unprofitable. 

Even if we can't make it unprofitable, I'm confident that we can make it substantially less profitable.  I'm ready to stop shadow boxing and land some punches.

Don IMHO your title and the content doesn't sit well. You may have disappointed neutral readers by writing this blog.

How could an up coming dialog from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is of that important for Infosys when it can't offer anything(good or bad) with any legal proceedings which is ongoing.

All they(Infosys) will be doing at this point is creating a strong legal panel to handle the case. Linking any US personnel visit to India with Infosys fraud case doesn't go well. There is always some visa fraud cases going on with some or the other department.

With this blog you had created impression (at least in me) of take every small opportunity to stress a point to your readers "See most Indian companies always does immigration fraud". And destroyed the trust that "Don Tennant" is always neutral towards origin of a company and he writes for/on a issue and doesn't take side.

Don,

I am ex infosys employee and know lots of H1B fraud employees in US right now.

If you follow my advise then you will crack a bomb shell on Infosys fraud.

20% petitions are fraud, you will get one employee name and address and his H1B fraud proof.

Ping me if u need to drop a bomb shell and entire H1B will be exposed.

I also agree that Hiliary's visit will not have anything to do with Infosys.At most, the visa issue may be raised but the Indians are most likely to receive a curt response.

There is an online interview with Kenny Mendelsohn about his views on the civil and criminal cases against Infosys.

India_taati,

Please forward any fraud information to the IRS, ask for (or claim) any reward in your forward.  IRS probably has a whistleblowers website. 

If InfoSys, and employ, or any company, is using the B-1 visa to bring in people to actually do work at a customer's site.  InfoSys may be found to have committed tax fraud.  As they deliberately broke the U.S. visa law, and in doing so, failed to pay United States taxes due by any employer who employs a worker in the United States. 

Whether that worker is here legally or illegally, you must pay taxes due for that worker.  A worker in the United States, illegally because of Visa fraud, is still a worker, and taxes must be paid.

The IRS will reward you handsomely, with a substantial part of the dollar value of the tax settlement.  This could put you on easy street for the rest of your life.

Forward any information you may have to the IRS and copy the U.S. immigration service.  And thanks in advance from workers all around the world, in helping to end human trafficking.

There is tonnes of info out there about the H1b abuse. But, not much will be done so no use in complaining, exposing yada yada yada.

Just today, I overheard an H1b employee offering training sessions for a fee. Now, this person is fully aware that he is only allowed to work for the employer that sponsored his H1b visa, and that moonlighting is not allowed. But, he does not care, cuz he knows he can get away with it. He makes extra money and does no tpay any taxes, too.

One more thing, I am pretty sure his trainees are other Indians :P

All I can do is bite my tongue, and cry inside about what has happened to this country

The IRS is extremely aggressive if they have evidence (or even suspicion) of tax evasion.  (or even if you are just unlucky).

When the IRS will audit a contractor or waitress for 10k in suspected tax fraud, you know they will eagerly go after a corporation suspected of hundred of thousands of dollars, potentially millions of dollars worth of tax fraud.

The IRS doesn't operate by the same rules as U.S. immigration, the IRS is way more aggressive (because most IRS cases are civil cases, not criminal, the evidence gathering can be very invasive).  The IRS can seize banks accounts and assets on a whim, and force companies to divulge financial information.

So go for it India_taati, you will be sorry if you don't, because IRS rewards can be total in the millions of U.S. dollars.

Agenda for Hilary's visit to India also has removal of NATO forces from Afghanistan and Pak-Af situation besides discussion on Indo-US high technology cooperation group. So it seems that this meeting has hardly anything to do with Palmer's case and has other very important things on plate. There are tons of companies and dozens of criminal lawsuit filed by and on these companies through out the world and for this reason seperate bodies are there to do the justice. So unlike as mentioned by the blogger that "No one will be listening to that dialogue more intently than the executives at Infosys", I feel that Infy executives would be the last one to listen this dialouge. -Cheers!

The problem is greater than just Infosys. There are spin off companies that are also doing business using the same tactics. I wouldn't be surprised if there is collusion between Infosys and its spin offs to hide details about shady visa dealings. The investigation needs to widen its umbrella. I am sure there are enough disgruntled employees willing to spill what they know.

Meanwhile, Infosys announced today that they will be hiring another 10,000 or so for this year and close to 45,000 for fiscal 2012, while Cisco has announced layoffs of close to 10,000. The bottom-line seems to be that Outsourcing companies are simply going about their business-as-usual, while technology companies are retrenching.

He is the proud citizen of America and now America is proud of him. He put his life (who lost his right hand in Afghanistan while shielding a live hand grenade from wounded comrades.) to save others, every person who are part of fraud and aware of fraud has to come forward and report it. Otherwise there is very less fraud will get exposed and it never gets over. Instead of spamming others blog and being a keyboard hero try to be real hero by exposing/reporting fraud.

IRS is not the problem, people like you are the problem who are clearly aware of fraud going on and decided to keep it under rug or biting his/her own tongue. If every fraud is reported by employees and if every resource working in client place is validated by the client then no company will dare to participate in any kind of visa fraud. Before complaining about government agencies make sure we have done our part.

Instead of crying fraud, fraud, fraud...better report it...need to know where to report it read below

Contact the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement by telephone at (866) DHS-2-ICE. The hotline is designed specifically to accept immigration violation reports. Best part is you can complain anonymously.

India_taati, this from a tax whistleblower website:

"The new IRS Whistleblower statute gives anyone with information about large-scale tax underpayments, including accounting errors, tax fraud or evasion, a significant financial incentive to report it. The IRS must give you up to 30% of any money they collect based upon your information."

The IRS goes after big, small, and medium size tax fraud all the time. 

Big guys, little guys, anyone.  So don't be afraid to report the fraud.

Hireamerican,

What's wrong with the our country is that we are in debt 14 trillion and counting.

And we are allowing outsourcing companies to bring in sub-minimum wage workers using a government program, called the B-1 visa.  B-1 is not a work visa, and it is illegal to bring someone in under this Visa to work at a job site. 

And B-1 Visa can be used to commit tax fraud (really fraudulent shelter), because B-1 visa workers don't pay U.S. taxes.

Hey we spent a lot of money on wars (which we had to fight, and were forced on us).  And we have a great infrastructure.  We also have welfare and entitlements.  This stuff is not cheap, but it keeps us healthy and safe.

That's the way we are, we care, certainly whether we need all these programs or not, is an open, debatable subject.  Whether or not to pay your taxes, is not debatable, see Wesley Snipes, Willey Nelson, or Nicolas Cage if you have any questions.

Outsourcers are the new "Mob", the death threats and intimidation against Jay Palmer prove it.  Al Capone went in on tax evasion, sometimes that's how they bring down the mob.  It isn't pretty, but sometimes it's the only way.

Infosys senior level meetings : We will dump 6 million Indians in US and capture their entire IT market and no American will ever come to know about this. We will throw these Americans out of their own country. They don't know what we are doing over here.

******

When Infosys files petition it uses fake resume. Employee works in different project (Client itself is different and had never worked on the technology.

So petition fake, resume fake.

But on Immigration or catching the guy right in office and force him to login to Infosys Intranet and then take a snap shot of the projects which he has worked (Profile displays that) and then match with petition. It will not match.

Even Jay Parmer and do that. he is manager and should have access to any employee project history. I will give you the name and address of the employee. Ask Jay Parmer to take a snap shot and match with petition from USICS.

It is very simple. Infosys will never come to know.

" Title 8, Section 1182 INADMISSIBLE ALIENS says ALL foreign workers are illegal and cannot work in USA if Americans are unemployed. That makes ALL these foreign workers ILLEGAL ALIENS. Reply

"Bell Labs (Arun Netravalli took over, closed, turned into a shopping mall) Please read why Bell lab lost it charm.It did because it lost talent to innovate not that it hired an Indian.Also it tried to focus on more profitable market segments and detracted from applied science research.Read wikipedia and read about Arun here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A....He has more than 80 patents and has founded several companies.Look at his qualifications and then realize you are a looser in life." Netravalli took over R&D at Bell Labs, laid all its Americans off and replaced them with cheap labor Indians. That's how it lost its "talent". The bottom line is Netravalli was running the place when it went down. He's responsible. Stop deflecting blame. I don't care how many patents he has, he couldn't run Bell Labs. And since I wrote software at Apple and Sony, including for Playstation, I hardly think you are in any position to be calling me a "looser" (I think you mean "loser"). What have you contributed to the world?" Reply

"ComAir crew system run by 100% Indian IT workers caused the 12/25/05 U.S.airport shutdown when they used a short int instead of a long int What about floating point error by intel in 1975 ?What about Dallas baggage system Software is complex business and mistakes do happen.It has nothing to do with who wrote the system. What floating point error would that be? Once upon a time the US airline system could NEVER have had a nationwide shutdown failure like this. EVER. Not until brilliant guest workers didn't know when to use a long int instead of a short int. LOL. Stop your delusions. Reply

"Lot of Indians are employed in Intel R&D.USB and Pentium line are prime examples.Go check your facts." Ok, here's a fact: USB was created by a multi-consortium company, not by Intel. Do you even know where USB came from? Look it up. "WHitefield was cancelled because AMD had better design then Intel and it did not make sense for them to go ahead in the process." "Intel's Xeon chip kill is result of chaos in India Server chief leaves India and Intel behind By Ashlee Vance in Mountain View Posted in Servers , 28th October 2005 19:02 GMT While stunning in its own right, Intel's cancellation this week of the multicore "Whitefield" processor stands as a more significant miscue that simply excising a chip from a roadmap. Whitfield's disappearance is a blow to India's growing IT endeavors." Reply

"Why Adobe has major development center in India if Indians are worthless.Check your facts again.Adobe has largest presence outside US in India and lot of R&D and development happens there.BTW current ceo of adobe is also an indian and well known in his domain." I used to work at Adobe, you didn't. Adobe has an R&D center in India because its CEO is Indian and India desperately needs jobs, that's why. Every single problem presented in the list is backed up by facts, not "baseless". Stop the lies. Reply
