India-based outsourcing and business consulting firm Infosys Ltd. has agreed to pay $800,000 to the State of California to resolve allegations that the company misclassified approximately 500 Infosys employees as working in California on B-1 visas rather than H-1B visas.  By using the B-1 visas, Infosys avoided California payroll taxes and avoided the H-1B obligation to pay workers at the local prevailing wage.  The case was initiated by a whistleblower complaint under the California False Claims Act filed by Jack “Jay” B. Palmer, who will receive 15% of the settlement.  CA
