Share Article

Counterclaims allege that consulting company broke its contracts with six H1-B employees by failing to pay them properly.

I am confident they will prevail.

Six former employees have filed counterclaims against Xcel Solutions Corporation, a Matawan, New Jersey-based consulting company, alleging that Xcel breached their employment contracts by failing to pay them wages, "bench pay," bonuses, and other monies. The employees, who are all computer professionals living and working in the United States pursuant to the H1-B visa program, were taken to court by Xcel after they resigned. Xcel has alleged, in the separately-filed lawsuits, entitled Xcel Solutions Corporation v. Tan (Docket No. MID-L-3604-08), Anaque (Docket No. MID-L-8372-08), Sebastian (Docket No. MID-L-4467-08), Wingpo (Docket No. MID-L-10300-08), Gayacao (Docket No. MID-L-3603-08), and Yap (Docket No. MID-L-7882-08), that the employees breached their employment contracts.

According to the Counterclaims filed by the employees, however, Xcel violated the contracts first, by either failing to properly compensate for "bench" time, failing to pay wages when due, failing to pay promised bonuses, failing to pay overtime, and/or failing to reimburse for expenses. The employees are seeking dismissal of Xcel's claims and payment of the monies they claim Xcel owes them.

"My clients are good, hardworking people who came to the U.S. to work and build a future for themselves and their families," said the lawyer for the employees, Steven Siegler, Esq., of East Brunswick, NJ. "I admire their courage in fighting these lawsuits and striking back against Xcel to recover the monies they feel they are owed," he added. "I am confident they will prevail."
