Ex-employer quotes 12 month contract in background check, what at the options?
Marketed profile at a lower rate than promised,Paid her a salary lesser than promised rate,Withheld all the Overtime payment,Withheld last 2 weeks of salary
"A" which claims to be an “At Will” employer displayed their unwillingness to relieve her amicably quoting a 12month contract.She has now joined a new firm post H1 Transfer.
Post quitting and starting her new job with current employer, she had given up on this bad experience with her "A" and the hope to get back all the money withheld.
Recently the current employer informed that her "A" mentioned “She violated legal contract” during a regular background screening, no details given. Not sure how things would unfold but we think it's high time to stand the ground and seek legal counsel. Is this is worth a legal pursuit
