Re: Employment Bond
I am currently working in a contract manufacturer. My customer requested me to attend a kick-off meeting for a new project at their office in US to discuss about the transfer plan and schedule.
The meeting took 4 days. My company has asked me to sign the 9 month bond letter for this trip.
However i checked the company policy that the bond only applicable for trainning and product transfer training. But the company director insist that bond is required since I have face to face with the customer.
I have signed the letter last month as the meeting cannot be done without me.
My question is:
- Is this bond valid as i think the reason of bond is more toward to director's personal feeling rather than follow company policy?
- Can I insist to resign without paying the bond? In such case, what can the company re-act if the bond is valid?
- Will this become a court case? Will the laywer fee expensive?
Appreciate your advise on this.
