I have 37 years experience as an immigration attorney.

YES. citizens of the Mauritius do need to obtain a work visa for the US. If it is an H1B for a professional worker the employer must file a petition. Currently there are no H1B visa available until next October 2018.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
