Two Indian-American brothers, owners of Dibon Solutions Inc, have been sentenced to over seven years in prison for committing fraud in H1B visa programme. 

The company sponsored H-1B workers for jobs that didn't necessarily exist. The visa holders were only paid if the company was able to place them. They were also required to pay visa processing fees, even though current law requires the hiring firm to pay these fees. read whole story 

Before applying for H-1B visa, it is very important that you know whether the employers are willful violator employers or Debarred/Disqualified Employers! 

Willful violator employers are the employers who have committed either a willful failure or a misrepresentation of a material fact when hiring foreign workers. The employers must comply with additional attestations when filing Labor Condition Applications(LCA) for H-1B Visa. 

Debarred/Disqualified Employers are those who have been debarred or disqualified from approval of petitions for nonimmigrant visa. It is a good habit if you bookmark and check the list every month! 

With our new database engine, you can now search all LCA filed by either willful violators and/or H-1B dependent employers. Believe it or not, those employers have filed over half a million LCA since 2012!
