Information on the website also says that Infosys has unlawfully used B-1 visa holders to perform skilled labor in order to fill positions in the United States for employment that would otherwise be performed by US citizens or require legitimate H-1B visa holders.

As part of the settlement, Infosys will be paying $34 million to various government agencies, which will include $5 million to homeland security investigations for civil or administrative forfeiture, a similar amount to the department of state and $24 million to the US attorney’s office for the eastern district of Texas, the report added.

Some media reports added that the Infosys whistleblower in visa fraud case could get $8 million as compensation. The report could not be verified.
