I guess they got into trouble for bringing workers into USA with incorrect VISA types. I think the smoking gun was a memo telling applicant how to lie during immigration interview.

As per the Indian press/media:

The accusation is that Infosys “knowingly and unlawfully” brought Indian engineers into the US on business visitor, or B-1 visas, for onsite client projects in the US that actually required tough to get, expensive H-1B work visas.

It started with an Infosys employee named Jack B Palmer, who sued Infosys for breach of contract, with an alleged Infosys scheme which flouted US immigration laws by bringing in engineers from Bangalore on $160 B-1 visas, for onsite client projects in the US that actually required $5,000 H-1B work visas.

However, “Those claims are untrue and only unproven assertions.” Infosys said in a statement

"But we'll pay $34 million to make them go away."
