I signed an employment contract at a new company, but since signing it and before starting work, I've found out some things about the company that are making me think twice. Could I suffer any penalties or future employment issues if I back out now?
Employment / Labor Attorney
An employment attorney would need to review the contract itself to give you a careful evaluation. However, in Virginia, either the employee or the employer is free to end the employment relationship at any time and for any reason that is not unlawful. Good luck.
