The National Organization for Software and Technology Professionals (NOSTOPS) in partnership with Foundups Corp. launches IndiaVerified.com to encourage individuals and company to join the fight against resume fraud by empowering individuals to protect their personal information data from being manipulated or abused by becoming verified.
Online PR News – 11-September-2010 – – A crisis is brewing and very little is being done to stop it. "The U.S. and Indian job market is being flooded with fraudulent resumes. It is growing problem that threaten both U.S. and India’s businesses and the honest people seeking employment. Fraud is perpetuating more fraud. And it is getting out of control" said NOSTOPS founder Mr. Rajiv Dabhadkar "A lot of the fraud is not even being perpetrated by the worker but by thousands of H-1B companies that are aggressively competition to submit the best looking candidate."
According to the USCIS, 2008 H-1B Benefit Fraud & Compliance Assessment, 13% of all H-1B applications are fraudulent and 21% of H-1B service corps was in violation of U.S.Immigration law. Another independent report by KPMG on fraud report highlights the urgent need for action from management of companies against fraud.
The recent 'India Fraud Survey Report - 2010' by KPMG emphasizes the alarming rise in fraudulent documentation by employees. The delay in processing of visas for Indian knowledge workers by host nations, due to their stringent immigration border control policies, restrict the outward mobility & increase costs to their employers. Efforts therefore are made to scrutinize and verify their applicant pool.
Since 2004 NOSTOPS has been bringing awareness to a growing movement of knowledge capital across borders and trying to bring about legislative changes and reforms. With a new presence in Washington D.C., Foundups Corp and NOSTOPS have partnered to launch IndiaVerified.com and a new strategic initiative to bring about a grass roots "change movement" targeting early adapter company partners that will help join NOSTOPS in battling resume.
NOSTOPS goals are :
- Creating an open H-1B employment system void of fraud
- Reduction of corporate expose to resume fraud
- Significantly reduce corporate HR employee validation expense
- Identify employee gaps in employment, and rehire them
- Actively promote circular migration across borders
IndiaVerified.com is an Open Registry of verified and background screened knowledge workers that aim to bring about Transparency, Accountability, Reliability and Professionalism in the global labor market across borders.
Talking at the web site launch in Washington D.C., Mr. Michael Trout, CEO – IndiaVerified.com, emphasized on the need for individuals to think of their resume as their personal information data (PID) and that it is their responsibility to make sure that it is secure and correct so that it cannot be manipulated by others. "We aim unite the partners and to develop the technology that will once and for all eliminate resume fraud and help make the job market open and free from abuse. IndiaVerified is just the pilot and over the next couple of years Trout plans on releasing AmericaVerified.com, AsiaVerified.com, EuropeVerified.com and AfricaVerified.com. "The problem of CV fraud is a global one and as globalization occurs it will become an even bigger problem. It is already massive and costing corporations billions. We don't think corporations should have to pay. Resume fraud is an enemy to all and it must be stopped."
Founder & President of NOSTOPS, Rajiv Dabhadkar has been striving hard to set right this growing crisis and to enhance the exchange of the migrant knowledge workers across borders. He added "Through this initiative we hope to begin making the individual more competent and accountable by providing them an opportunity to do the right thing in protecting their professional identity; and to be sought by the employers rather than trying to beat the system and choose to be transparent and accountable by getting their CV verified to be gainfully employed." said Mr. Dabhadkar.
