Economic Policy Institute (EPI) said in a report, that HCL Tech underpaid H-1B visa holders by up to $95 million in the last few years. This is in violation of the H-1B program which requires that immigrant visa holders be paid at par with local US workers, in order to ensure that American jobs are not taken away by visa holders on lower wages.

Last year, HCL was ranked eighth in total H-1B approvals, with 1,405 new visas and 2,801 visa renewals.
But HCL Tech is not the lone offender says EPI as it states that Oracle experts with H-1B visas are paid $55,000 less than US workers.
