Two previous members have asked certain questions. Even though you have not answered these questions, let me say that recommending your name for visa without communication is illegal. If your company wanted to transfer you abroad then your company should have entered into agreement with you. In the agreement, terms and conditions for your abroad stay should have been mentioned clearly. But then you say that "please note that my employer did not share any details with me about USCIS communication."
At this stage, you may approach a lawyer who handles cases under Indian Contract Act, 1872. Please note that your case comes under this act and not under labour laws. First send your application to the MD of the company about clarifying your position. Tell him to withdraw this letter. If MD does not reconcile then approach a lawyer and send lawyer's notice. If your company ignores the lawyer's notice then file suit for wrongful claim and mental harassment.
