URGENT HELP NEEDED
EmpX(a consultancy) started my H1B transfer(premium processing) after successful Client Interview. They filed the petition and Receipt No is generated.
I signed Employment agreement with Emp X stating start date(in future) and Salary details but nothing related to H1B VISA Cost/Refund Payment in case I dont join.
Now I don’t want to join Emp X because my current Employer gave a hike & started GC process.
I mailed Emp X of my decision of not joining them. they called me and told below actions against me.
- Reimburse premium transfer + attorney fee(Liquidated damage), else they will withdraw USCIS Application marking me under Fraud category, which will give RFE everytime I go for VISA Stamping
- If I default and don’t pay liquidated damage within 30 days, they will handover to collection which will be a nuisance for you and affect your credit report.
Please suggest/advice of legal trouble I may get into?
