Indian software giant  Infosys has, by filing Form 20-F to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, disclosed that the department of homeland security (DHS) has reviewed the eligibility verifications of some its employees' Form I-9 (the US Immigration and Citizenship Services Form), and found significant errors.

The company has pleaded that the new US visa laws may discourage customers from seeking services and have an adverse effect on business, revenues and operations of the company. As on March 31, the company had 10,800 H-1B visas and 1,600 L-1 visas.

The Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorisation of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All US employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States.

In the filing, Infosys added that the DHS may impose fines and penalties related to such alleged errors. The DHS recently advised continued investigation into B-1 visas and added that additional subpoenas may be issued, Infosys said. 

"While we are talks with the US Attorney’s office, we are unable to predict the final outcome of these investigations and estimate the losses incurred in connection with the resolution of these matters."

Infosys received a subpoena on May 23, 2011 from the US Grand Jury over allegations of visa misuse.
