Pulling back the curtain on how companies train replacements

If foreign workers arrive on H-1B and get trained, their companies are in violation of US law.

H-1Bs can only work in the US if they possess skills not found in the US population, and then only if they are paid the prevailing wage or more.

Training H-1B visa workers is visa fraud, which is a Federal crime.


“Democrats are hoping to discourage firms from moving jobs overseas by reporting where employees are located. One lawmaker also wants clarity on how outsourced workers are trained.

Axne is the sponsor of the Outsourcing Accountability Act, introduced this month. Its goal is to make it harder for publicly traded companies “to deceive workers and the public when they do ship jobs overseas.” HR departments may have to assemble lists of where these employees are working.  “.
