Employers are under constant scrutiny and regulation by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Employment Training Administration (ETA), Social Security Administration (SSA), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and a host of other federal and state agencies who monitor and control the employment of foreign immigrant workers and foreign nonimmigrant workers. With some of them sanctions, fines and criminal penalties may be imposed on employers and employees who violate the law.
For example, when H-1B visa labor condition application violations are found, the Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division of the Department may impose fines from $1,000 to $35,000 per violation. They may additionally impose the paying of back wages and guilty employers may be prohibited from future access to the H1B visa program.
