Employer Asking H1B Transfer FEE
Company "A" had filed my H1B transfer after I accept their offer. I signed the offer letter
In offer letter no where it is mentioned that if I leave company , i have to pay H1B transfer expenses.
Also It is clearly written without any reason , time either way can terminate job. This is below from offer letter..
"I have read and accept this employment offer. I understand my services under this agreement will begin with the successful transfer of my H1B. I understand my employment is terminable at will, i.e., and either company or I may terminate the employment relationship at any time, with or without cause."
Now , I have a better offer ,I am not joining that company .
They are asking me for H1B transfer expenses.
Company is asking "You signed and agreed to become an employee, however you never even started working here to begin an employee/employer relationship also you keep delying your joing time..It is clear that the delays were a stall tactic and completely dishonest, which any court will agree with."
If I am not paying it, they are going to take legal action ..
Please let me know your thought or any lawyer can help me in case company files legal action and what will be charges
Thanks a lot ..
I posted in the wrong thread.
Its illegal by law.
OK. Assume that you decided to take the "better offer" by throwing the previous "better offer" and they trasnfer your H1, before joining them you will surely get another "better offer" in few months, because you are always searching for that, what will you do?
"Career growth is important and you have to catch the opportunities on your way." - I guess you misunderstood this.
I will not encourage this practice at all.
Consult a qualified immigration lawyer always before you act.
