Relocation reimbursement not paid and terminated


Recommended Posts

I had a question on relocation reimbursement.


My H1B from H4 was filed by my employer and the offer letter contained clause for


a) A two year commitment (no penalty on termination though)

b) Sign-on bonus & re-location reimbursement.


Unfortunately my employer chose to terminate me without notice within the first month of employment while I was still in probation. I was not paid the reimbursement / sign-on bonus yet.


I was wondering if I am entitled to claim relocation (because I moved to different state for job) and sign-on bonus even if my employment was terminated within a month. Is the company entitled to the commitment made in offer letter to repay reimbursement / sign on bonus?


Help would be much appreciated.
