Thread: Desi Employer won't give H1 papers, pays peanuts HELP!

  1. #1
    Hello all viewers and friends,

    Desidog say freindly bow wow to you all
    I am having substantial difficulty with a desi consulting company. I am a computer scientist from India. I came to the U.S. from Japan in Oct. 2004. a desi consulatnt sponsored my H1 , and i got a job in a week (on my own) with a decent fortune 500 company. As per our agreement which is in writing , they started paying me peanuts. the pay is so dismal , if i told you; you would not be shocked, you'd be amused. I have all the current pay stubs etc. My h1 was approved in Oct. of 2004, but THEY KEPT these papers and i DO NOT even have a photocopy or any other details but i have seen these papers and am certain that i work legally on H1 status. the contract that i signed with them said that i must work with them for atleast 18 months or pay a huge ransom for breaking the contract. The 18 months are not over yet.
    The interesting part begins now. During lunch hour 2 weeks ago a recruiter approached me at the local subway and we got talking. VOILA! Competitor wants to hire me fulltime , will pay me a good (great from current situation) salary and treated me very well during the interview trip. Nice hotel, limo, lunch, sight seeing etc. Really cool.
    I called the desi consultant company and asked for my papers. they told me to shut up (I am putting it politely here , read this as four letter words , you know what i mean).
    they said that my contract is for 18 months and that i should not even think about changing jobs. that's being unfaithful etc. etc.... The new employer wants me to start working ASAP. They will transfer the h1 and more importantly treat me like a human being. I have the pay stubs, MASTERS DEGREE FROM INDIA, and my current job is fine (no threat), is there some way that i can get my h1 papers from them ? Can the new employer transfer my old h1 without the old approval papers ? I have the i 94 on my passport as i entered on an F2 (wife's dependent, who is a student ) status. the consultant is cheating me , i know but i want to do this without any trouble. Any ideas/suggestions would be helpful.

    My question is... can I transfer the H1 in some way to my new employer? I wanna bite these consulting blood ****ing leech companies ...

    Kindly share your experiences/thoughts. PLEASE HELP ME, i'LL APPRECIATE IT.
