US Firm was Accused Of Abusing H-1B Visa




A Fortune 500 energy company in the US has been accused of replacing American employees with low-wage H-1B workers, including Indians.
In his letter by lynch dated February 3, which was released to the press yesterday, the Senator said the use of foreign outsourcing firms has been the subject of major concern among a bipartisan group of lawmakers for some time, as has the disproportionate displacement of American IT workers by H-1B and other nonimmigrant worker visa holders generally.

According to Computer World, the IT firms — Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services — that Eversource uses for outsourcing are major beneficiaries of the H-1B visa.

According to this report, Eversource contracted with two offshore outsourcing firms to bring in foreign workers through a nonimmigrant worker visa program to replace their American IT staff.

The Senator said that the attempt to coerce the laid-off employees into remaining silent about their treatment is deeply troubling.
