11:32 pm
partner have heard stories and represented workers from body shops for years. >> they may not even have a job, which is a misrepresentation of the h-1b visa. >> reporter: federal law requires that companies that bring workers over on h-1b visas already have jobs lined up for them. it also requires that the companies foot the bill for visa, attorney, and document fees. but we found dozens of cases where those rules were ignored or broken. leaving foreign workers who thought they had jobs now in the u.s. still legally, broke, and unemployed. we tracked various criminal and civil cases involving consulting companies or their executives in u.s. district court and state courts around the country. in total, these court filings involved more than 600 fraudulent h-1b visas and tet turners, at least the cases we looked into, an outfit called silicon valley sistek. >> a lawsuit against silicon

11:34 pm
except to go to work. >> we are placing you in the guesthouse. until you get the job you have to stay in the guesthouse. you cannot go out to walk, even for a walk. >> reporter: this worker asked to remain anonymous because he fears for his future job prospects by speak out now. he stayed in guest houses for several months. my family is in india. i have a 6-month-old baby. and my family is in india. i want to see my son. >> this body shop could cancel your visa and send you back to india at any time. >> yeah, the rights for the employer. >> reporter: and that scares you? >> that scarce me. >> reporter: the worker says the body shop he worked for kept up to 30% of his $60 an hour salary for expenses and taxes. that's a loss in his salary of about $35,000 a year. but they did charge you? >> they did charge me. >> reporter: how much did they charge you? >> $2,300. you pay the company to get you an h-1b visa.
11:35 pm
>> yes. i did not have any money. >> the room for abuse is there definitely. >> reporter: dr. aneesh aneesh, a sociology researcher at the university of wisconsin milwaukee has studied h-1b visas and body shops for years. aneesh says as long as consulting firms play by the rules, their existence is critical for large high-tech companies to operate efficiently. >> it's a very flexible kind of labor regime much of the time they are placing very skilled people with the needy firms in the u.s. >> reporter: as for workers like rajeesh, he says he just wants a fair playing field for all courageous enough to pursue their american dreams. how widespread is this? >> it's all over the country. i can't list a specific state where it's not happening. it's across the country. >> reporter: so who is at fault here? experts say current federal law as it's designed allows for this abuse by some companies. and those experts want congress and the u.s. labor department to
