Hello,

Sorry to hear, please report the employer to DOL for unfair employment practices. IMHO, you should have protested (legally) to start with such an unfair employment contract without benefits and with lower salary.

PS: Please do not generalize your experience as 'most of us'. It is very important to highlight the fraud, but at the same time, it is equally important to acknowledge that 'most of us' do not suffer from these unethical oddball employers.

I dont understand why you are afraid of your employer even after you got your GC, tell him to shut the f*** up and go join the new company and ur employer has no way other than to pay the money he owes you for every hour you worked.

If you're an anti - Too much focus on "Indian" and "Lower Wages". Good try.

IF you're not an anti - You worked for lower wages. You harrassed yourself. What are you complaining about. Now that you have got your GC, you realize you're being harrassed....ROFL.

I have been very calm and told him that since I still have to get paid for next 4 months. He can still keep me on his payroll that way on paper I will have completed six months with him . Which I really do not want to do and leave at this very moment.

I want lawyer's opinion in what is the consequences if I just leave plain like that. I have already signed offer letter with my full time offer. Is it legit to be on the Indian payroll for about 4 months once I start full time next month.

Your advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards.

Let us see:

You were Ok working for "lower wages, no beneifts and no promotions" for about six years now.

You are surprised that your employer does not treat you with respect and courtesy.

You worked for atleast four months without pay. It seems that when you applied for your greencard (or atleast I-485) you had no intention working for your employer on a permanent/long term basis. You did not have any intention of working for you employer on a permanent/long term basis when you recieved the card two months ago. Today you do not have any intention of working for your employer on a permanent/long term basis yet you are willing to work with your employer to "still keep (you) on his payroll that way on paper (you) will have completed six months with him."

You want to know if it is "legit".

Interesting ... very interesting.

Default I am not affraid nor I am complaining

Guys-

Thanks for your responses. I am not afraid of my Indian employer- I just want to check with lawyer if he can do something now that I am going to join new full time employment. After waiting for this many years of green card wouldn't one want to check legal opinion of Lawyer.I have not heard of single case being revoked based on similar cases like mine.. I have already signed the offer letter and I am joining my new company

Another thing what I meant by like 'most of us' meaning in the same situation that I was before getting green card-Lower salaries, companies taking big chunk of your hard earned contract money and treating employees as slaves.

Is any lawyer out there to give me some advise please.

Thread starter's only purpose is to highlight "Indian company", "lower wages" and "harrasment". Good try. But most people here are legit and discuss immigration related backlogs.

Now that you have got your GC thru illegal means - now you're coming here to "PROJECT how indians companies work". Wonderful. Go girl.

Arrow I dis agree...

"Another thing what I meant by like 'most of us' meaning in the same situation that I was before getting green card-Lower salaries, companies taking big chunk of your hard earned contract money and treating employees as slaves."

NO, Companies DO NOT PAY lower salaries,NOT supposed to pay low salaries and take big chunks of your paychecks. Either you have been DUPED for 6 years or have really downplayed yourself for so long to get the GC anyhow.

DO NOT Generalize with 'Most of us', you always had the option to find a new employer and switch your H1B. Agreed, that you have to fore-go the old GC application. But, you "Chose" to stay with that harassing employer for 6 years.

You can still report and I think you should report to DOL about your employer. Your GC will not be affected by such actions.

Hello,

Once again, you are an outlier than a general example of H1-B. Most of the H1-Bs have following characteristics:

a) Highly skilled in their area of work
b) Paid at least equal to prevailing market wage (and in most cases, significantly higher)
c) Are not scammed by their employers

Please file a legitimate complaint with DOL as soon as possible, if you are real...
