I found ILW.COM's brief description of the consent decree, In the Matter of
Universal Software Solutions, Inc., No. 2003-LCA-10 (OALJ, Feb. 27, 2003), to be misleading.
While the consent decree did include a civil money penalty of $50 to an employer for accepting payment from an employee for the H-1B fee, the same decree also included an agreement that the employer would pay four employees more than $50,000 in back wages.
Giving the impression that an employer who violated the H-1B regulations walked away with only a $50 fine does a disservice to the enforcement staff at the Department of Labor, as well as to the users of your informative website.
