    Based on what you've written, there does not seem to be any legal recourse for your husband against his employer. The best and most direct course of action might be for your husband to speak to his direct supervisor about receiving assistance in his current position.

    Scott’s Answer

    Check with a contracts lawyer in your state. The IT Recruiting Company may have a duty to mitigate its damages, but otherwise, yes, you're technically on the hook for the $2,500.

    Scott’s Answer

    You should contact an employment law attorney in your area. It is illegal to be passed over for promotions or any other form of advancement because of a protected characteristic (sex, race, etc.).

    Scott’s Answer

    This is a fairly common wage and hour violation. You should contact a GA employment law attorney whom you can discuss your situation with and who can properly explain GA and federal wage and hour laws to you. In the end, you're going to want to file a wage and hour complaint against your (current) employer with a GA state administrative agency.
