  1. I am on H1b and considering joining a new company on H1b transfer. Currently, I have UHC. However, I need to wait for 31 days before getting health benefits in the new company. So, there is gap of around 5 weeks where I may not have health insurance. We are expecting and due in 4th week of July. My wife is dependent. Would you advise me on my options as I can't afford to be without insurance for a day. I have heard about COBRA. If that is the best option, does every company(including desi-companies) provide COBRA option? How common and reliable this is and the plz share process and timeline.

  3. Thank you Centepede. Thank you JoeF, I do understand that. However, the fact is I signed it assuming it's just another offer letter. Now, I feel being trapped. Advices here would be helpful. I am consult8ing lawyers anyway. The line that's worrying me the most is: Employee shall be liable to Company for any and all damages and relief as allowed by law, including but not limited lost profits, revenues and consequential damages. Can anyone guide me as to what could be the possible damage we are expecting?
  4. I have run this by 3 contract attorneys, but they all gave conflicting advices. So, I would like to understand the experiences and advices of other members here. How many legal issues occur when we don't join after signing employment agreement.
  5. Hi, I am on H1b. I have signed an employment agreement with an employer and now considering not to join them. The primary reason is there are many layers in this assignment and I am skeptical on the immigration process. I know I should have thoroughly gone through the agreement, however, the fact is I have signed and need to live with it. I want to understand the risk of not joining them after signing the employment agreement. Plz share your experience and inputs in similar cases. The clause that worries me: Damages for Breach of Term Provision. - Employee acknowledges the time, effort and resources that the Company has and will expend in developing and marketing Employee, and the damage that will result in the Company’s business in the event that Employee fails to join uponCompany filing for Employee’s H1B, appear at the outset of the Term or terminates thisAgreement prior to the end of the Term. Accordingly, in the event that Employee fails to join upon Company filing for Employee’s H1B, appear for employment at the outset of the Term, report to a Company designated assignment or project, or if Employee terminates Employee’s employment prior to the end of the Term, Employee shall be liable to Company for any and all damages and relief as allowed by law, including but not limited lost profits, revenues and consequential damages. Attorneys’ Fees & Costs. - The Employee agrees that if the Employee is held by any court of competent jurisdiction to be in violation, breach or non-performance of any of the terms of this Agreement, then the Employee shall pay all costs of such action or suit, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, of the Company.
