H1B: Employer threatening penalty money for leaving company.


Recommended Posts

I am on H1B visa. Recently I accepted an offer from other employer.

My H1b transfer is in progress. My employer is refusing to give latest payslip, also threatening me to pay penalty money(15K) for leaving company. I have not signed any papers which says anything about penalty. But I do signed a sheet of paper which states "Receipt and Acknowledgement of Employee Handbook", never got/read employee handbook from my employer. 


Need advice :

#1 In anyway my employer can take any legal action against me?

#2 Do I need to pay penalty? Because, not sure what is written in Employee Hand Book?
