ITBusinessEdge reporting that Infosys employee Jay Palmer who filed complaints on Infosys B1 visas fraud submitted his testimony to Senate Judiciary Subcommitee on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security. The compliant says that Infosys wrongly used B1 Visas while charging American employers the full hourly rate and paying Infosys employees only Indian salaries thus avoiding taxes and keeping profit margins higher on B1-Visas. Also to note that B1 Visas are used instead of H1-B visas to avoid minimum wages to its employees. It is noted that getting B1 visas is much easier compared to H1-B visas as the laws are strict for H1-B and is under more scrutiny these days.
Jay Palmer is employed by Infosys since August, 2008 as a Principal Consultant in the Enterprise Solutions Practice.
