Do Indian staffing companies ask for money from H1 B employees if they want to join another company and leave early? If yes, how to deal with it?Is it usually negotiated finally to an acceptable amount or it gets fought in a court of law?
An H-1B employee is the bread and butter of a staffing company. You can expect some resistance when separating. However, a US court will not allow the argument by the staffing company that a signed contract or bond exists on file. It is not legal anywhere in the US to prevent an employee from leaving a job or transferring anywhere. Take the case to court, you don’t need a lawyer. You will win.
