I am working in India with an Indian company.In March 2012 a consultancy in USA offered me job and were willing to transfer my previously held H1-B VISA. They were finally able to file my VISA in August end, but till then I joined other company who also filed my VISA transfer.
I went to other company because consultancy said that they will file once they get the client and there was no communication on this for almost one and half months.
Hence I joined the other company. When the consultancy informed me that they have filed, I asked them to not process this further and take it back but they still continued and waited till it got approved.
Now this consultancy has been troubling me saying that I will have to join them else pay their expenses for VISA. They also siad to file a case in India and US against me.
They had asked me to sign a agreement before filing the VISA which I signed and for repayment it says as below.
" If employee leaves the employment with XYZ within the first of employment, Employee shall reimburse all the expenses paid by XYZ to relocate the employee to US."
This does not have time duration and speaks about the employee. I was never an employee of this company and have not relocated to US.
Can they file a case on me or any other legal trouble for me?
