Infosys Whistleblower Reveals H-1B Workers Have Minimal Skills

A whistleblower that works for Indian tech corporation Infosys claims that H-1B workers that replace Americans in their positions have little to no business knowledge and very few relevant skills to their positions. The whistleblower, in turn, has asked legislators not to increase the number of work visas that have allowed these workers to take these positions and to plug in certain loopholes that exist in the immigration system.

That whistleblower is Jay B. Palmer, whose information about Infosys led to a $34 million settlement, the largest fraud settlement in United States history. He claims that large companies like Infosys regularly abuse H1B and B1 visa laws, as well as SEC income tax regulations, to save money on employment. Palmer says that Americans are being displaced from their positions in “record numbers” by employees that simply do not have the skills required to be reasonably effective in those positions and do not pay taxes on their income.

For quite some time, the identity of the whistleblower whose information led to the record case and the information about the case in general had been kept hidden from the general public. But the recently released information and allegations have stirred public outrage, particularly in a time where there are still many issues with unemployment and finances for citizens throughout the country.

If you are aware of any wrongdoing happening within your organization, there are numerous federal laws that will protect you should you choose to come forward as a whistleblower. Speak with a skilled lawyer at Whistleblower Law for Managers for more information on how to proceed.

Testimonials
  • "Steve Kardell was terrific in representing me in some very adversarial discussions with Citigroup and also later represented me in my testimony before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission."  -Richard Bowen, Citigroup Whistleblower

  • "Incredible knowledge of employee related concerns and equally brilliant knowledge of health care regulations, standards of practice. I would recommend this firm to anyone."  -V.B.

  • "Reaching out to Steve Kardell was the best decision I made. His ability to provide immediate insight and direction was very powerful, and a huge relief during a very stressful time period. For anyone struggling with a whistleblower situation, I would highly recommend at least speaking with Steve. After a 10 minute call with him, I had a better understanding of what I was dealing with. Even better, he gave me some immediate hope. In the end Steve did a better job than I thought was possible. Steve was able to get in contact with people in my organization, that I didn’t have access to. Because of his years of experience, he already has contacts in many organizations in Dallas. The entire situation was handled peacefully. I was impressed by his ability to “keep the peace”–rather than creating a battle with the organization. The reason I didn’t reach out to a lawyer initially, was because I thought it would mean an immediate end to any hope of a positive relationship with the company. Steve was able to address my concerns, and in the end I was able to continue to work for them."  -KS

  • "Never thought my career would end like it did after 30 years of service. I was part of the first round of the so called reduction of force. I asked myself how can I be part of this with 30 years of seniority. How did they pick these 90 plus employees? Now, the culture of this organization made you question every decision they made. It wasn’t what you knew it’s was a culture of who you know. Nonetheless, I did not accept their severance package. I immediately starting looking for an attorney who would take on my case. After the initial call to Steve I had hope again. He was open and honest about everything and reassured me he would do his best for me, and he did. I had an awesome outcome. Thanks Steve you’re the best."  -S.S.
