Patni Computer Systems Ltd.

Boston, MA: (Jun-07-07) The US Department of Labor brought charges against Patni Computer Systems Ltd., alleging that the company underpaid hundreds of employees hired under a controversial US visa program for highly skilled foreign workers. The firm was among nine India-based companies that recently were sent letters, questioning their use of the visa program and their wages. The nine firms collectively used nearly 20,000 of the 75,000 H-1B visas that were available in 2006. At Patni, investigators found that 607 employees hired by the India-based technology services company to do computer work in 32 states in 2004 and 2005 were not paid prevailing local wages. Meeting prevailing wage rates is required under the H-1B visa program. In a settlement reached, Patni has agreed to pay more than $2.4 million to settle federal allegations.
