H1B Visa fees - who pays them ?

Foreign Workers Get Back Wages for H1B Visa Fees

Ajilon Consulting, based in Towson, Maryland, has agreed to pay $466,483 in back wages to 202 temporary foreign workers employed as computer specialists after Department of Labor investigators said the company violated federal rules by requiring workers to reimburse the company for paying their H1B visa application fees.

The Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division in Detroit conducted an investigation of an Ajilon Consulting branch office in Southfield, Michigan, and says it found that H1B visa non-immigrant workers were required to reimburse the company for paying their H1B visa application fees. The regulations that implement the H1B provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act require that the employer, and not the employees, pay these visa application fees.

The department says Ajilon Consulting cooperated fully in the investigation and agreed to conduct a self-audit under the Labor Department's supervision. The company agreed to pay all of the back wages by November 2004 and agreed to comply with the H1B provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act in the future. The H1B visa workers were employed in 26 states.

The H1B visa program provides an avenue for US employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in high skilled jobs such as computer programmers, engineers, and medical doctors. The law requires companies to pay temporary foreign workers the same wage rates as similarly employed US workers, so as not to adversely affect US workers.
