I worked with NTTData 5 years ago on H1B(2011-2014).While working with them, Due to the wrong information given by the company's immigration team on H1B rules, my H1B work permit got denied. Even after the repeated attempts from my end to get the correct information, I was given wrong information. I had to leave the county at short notice, I lost my job and the family was under lot of stress during this time.
Company did not offer any help from their end during this time. I want to file a case/sue my previous employer for giving the wrong information. Is it possible to file a case for this?
Very difficult especially since you left yet you could always reach out to the ICE (Immigration and Custom Enforcement) Criminal Division INvestigations and provide them with your honest account of possible immigration fraud by that company.
In fact, at present the U.S. Government is cracking down on fake H1B comanies. Assist if you can.
