Keys Staffing Firm Owner Gets 32 Months for Illegal Worker Tax Violations

June 7, 2023

The owner of several Key West staffing companies is on his way to prison after a federal judge sentenced him to more than two years for hiring unauthorized alien workers and failing to pay taxes on their wages.

Batyr Myatiev, who for 10 years supplied labor to hotels, bars and restaurants in the Keys, must also pay more than $6.8 million in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Attorney for south Florida said in a bulletin last week.

The felony information filed in federal court said that Myatiev’s staffing companies signed contracts with the hospitality firms to provide more than 100 alien workers.
