Mashel Law Settles Fraud Wage Case For $125,000

Mashel Law settled for $125,000 a fraud related wage claim case where the Defendant employer reneged on its promise to pay our client, a foreign national residing in New Jersey under a H1B visa, a salary of $60,000 per year. In this lawsuit, Mashel Law alleged the Defendant had perpetrated a classic "bait and switch" deception by paying our client only half the salary promised before he accepted a job because the Defendant knew it could take advantage of our client's difficult residency situation resulting from our client's need to immediately find a new employer to sponsor his visa in the event he quit his job with the Defendant. Without an employer sponsoring his visa, our client ran the risk of immediate deportation from the United States. Given our client had less than $80,000 in provable lost wages, the settlement obtained for the client was a very good result.

No person ever wants to use a Labor and Employment Attorney because that indicates that someone has been through a bad experience. From my first contact with them up until our final meeting I was pleased with their professionalism, knowledge, kindness, and customer service. Their attorneys possess integrity and realism. They will fight for you if you have a case. I'm glad I came to Mashel law. While I hope anyone reading this doesn't need an attorney in this area, if you do I highly recommend them. V.S.
