California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
No, not in any other way. However, during my course of employment, I did report many ethical and harassment issues to HR and the Senior Leadership. Nothing came of it. I do not want to rake those up now.
I see. Thank you for the additional information, Sendil.I'm afraid I do not have good news for you. The employer's failure to deduct the pro-rated amount of the relocation expenses from your final paycheck would not typically constitute a material breach of the contract, releasing you from your obligation to pay the amount due pursuant to that agreement.I would make arrangements promptly to pay the amount agreed in order to avoid your credit report being damaged. In fact, I would request that the collection agency/employer agree in writing that they will not provide any negative information to the credit reporting agencies if you promptly pay the amount since it was the employer's error that led to this situation in the first place.They should be willing to agree to that limited term in order to settle the matter.
