San Jose-based Electronics for Imaging (EFI) will have to pay $40,156 to eight workers it brought in from India. A U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division investigation found the company required workers to put in as many as 122 hours per week and paid as little as the equivalent of $1.21 per hour in Indian rupees.
The investigation revealed that EFI flew in workers from India in 2013 to help install its network and server when it moved from Foster City to Fremont.
Because the violations were willful, the company paid an additional $3,520 in penalties.
