Buying off notice period
Hi, I have just joined a new company recently. On the 1st day report to work, HR told me that I have to pay back the amount that use to buy off my noticed period if I resign within 6 months. HR had requested me to sign on the agreement as well. Finally I have no choice and just sign it.
I have to serve 3 months noticed after resigned from previous company but current employer requested me to start as earliest as possible and never mentioned the condition in my official offer letter .
I feel it is unfair to me because it didnít be mentioned in the offer letter and the amount is being paid to previous company but not me.
Is it reasonable?
