An international tech consulting firm confirms the federal government is investigating its use of U.S. work visas.

A Mu Sigma spokeswoman told The Associated Press authorities asked the company to provide information related to its visas, and the company is cooperating fully.

Privately held Mu Sigma is headquartered in Illinois. CEO Dhiraj Rajaram also runs the company from offices in India.

Federal records show the company has brought in nearly 150 H-1B temporary workers since 2009. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to requests for comments.

The company declined to clarify whether the investigation is targeting H-1B or business visas.

Last year, tech giant Infosys settled a federal case for $34 million over allegations it used business visas to bring in temporary workers hired out for consulting work.
