I left my Bank A due to an offer from Bank B. I was told by the headhunter (Bank B representative) to NOT accept any counter offers or change my mind once the contract was signed...I did just that. 2 weeks after I left, Bank A sued me (but they withdrew the case a month later) and Bank B withdrew their offer even though the suit from Bank A was withdrawn and no party was guilty of any charges (nothing took place in essence - we didn't even go to court).
Since then I have been unable to find suitable work, filed for bankruptcy, lost my house to foreclosure and fallen behind on child support payments. In 2 recent cases, after I made it to the last round of the interviews, I was passed over because of the lawsuit details on google. Is there anything I could do to get compensated?Bank A tried to counter offer but as per the headhunter's advice, I did not take it - In retrospect, I should've. After leaving, I had a 3 month garden leave that was extended to 7 months by Bank A due to the legal issues we went through. However, for another person in my group joining the exact same team in Bank B, the garden leave imposed by Bank A was only 3 months - Felt that I was unnecessarily targeted.
