H-1B Body Shop Ordered To Pay More Than $740,000 in Back Wages

An H-1B IT body shop in Georgia was ordered to pay $741,288 in back wages to 73 employees who were unlawfully benched or required to pay visa and application processing fees.

The Department of Labor ordered Semafor Technologies LLC in Norcross to pay the back wages following an investigation into allegations of its unlawful practices. In addition to imposing back wage payments, DOL also has required the company to implement new payroll and time-keeping procedures to ensure future compliance with the H-1B program.

The company specializes in software development, on-site/off-site application outsourcing, infrastructure, consulting and product development services.

The DOL press release on the order is available here:

If you have been unpaid or benched by your employer, you may have claims. You can learn more about your rights by talking to a competent attorney.
