The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) conducted an audit of our compliance with H-1B visa laws in 2008 and 2009. After reviewing all of Cognizant’s practices from 2001 through 2008, the DOL found a greater than 99.7 percent compliance rate over the seven year period.
As an employer that regularly brings highly skilled workers into the U.S. as part of our growing permanent U.S. workforce, we are strong advocates for constructive immigration and education policies and practices.
In 2008 and 2009, the Department of Labor (DOL) undertook an 18-month audit of Cognizant’s compliance with H-1B visa laws. Its findings were a very positive reflection on our employees’ efforts to strictly adhere to our ethics and compliance programs.
In fact, the DOL praised Cognizant for "taking immediate steps to correct all identified violations and ensure future compliance," adding that our "cooperation sets a standard for others in the industry."
