Asked over 1 year ago - San Jose, CA

An Employer said he can Sponsor me a H1B Visa and I have signed an Agreement saying that""If the employee terminates the Employment within 12 months of the Signed Agreement he needs to pay the Liquidate Damage of $20000.00USD". I told them not to file my H1B and they are saying that they have already filed. But the filing starts only on April1st2013.
