New York Attorney General (AG) Eric T Schneiderman has announced a $1 million settlement with Infosys for failing to properly compensate hundreds of workers, pay applicable taxes and systematically abusing the United States visa rules in placing foreign workers at client sites in New York State. “We will not permit companies to violate our laws in order to undercut New York workers. My office is committed to ensuring that our state’s labor marketplace is fair, competitive and transparent for all,” said Attorney General Schneiderman in a press release.
