The department's Wage and Hour Division accused the company of underpaying the computer professionals between January 2004 and December 2005.

The H-1B visa program permits employers to hire foreign workers in professional occupations such as computer programmers, engineers, physicians and teachers. H-1B workers must be paid at least the same wage rates as are paid to U.S. workers who perform the same types of work or the prevailing wages in the areas of intended employment.

The Wage and Hour Division enforces the H-1B wage provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The Labor Department's website provides detailed information about hiring foreign workers at www.dol.gov/compliance/audience/foreign_workers.htm.
