PLANO (AP) - Federal prosecutors have scheduled a news conference to outline what they describe as the settlement of major visa fraud and immigration abuse case involving an international corporation.

The U.S. Attorney’s office in Plano refused to describe the case in advance of the Wednesday announcement, which comes amid news reports that the Indian technology outsourcing giant Infosys has agreed to pay a record fine.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Infosys said it was completing settlement talks with the government involving what it called “visa issues and I-9 documentation errors.” Employers file I-9 documents to certify that workers it sends to the United States are eligible to work there.

Infosys says it “denies any claims of systemic visa fraud, misuse of visas for competitive advantage, or immigration abuse.”
