California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Hello and welcome.
My name is Tina and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
There is nothing in writing indicating that if "A" introduced you to "B", then you were obligated to pay a fee to "A" provided you were hired by "B"?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
I was not certain if there was an agreement. That is why I recently contacted "A" and asked if there was an agreement.
This is what I asked:
"I intend to begin searching for employment on my own and I want to confirm with you that I am under no contract to work with the Lassen Group to find employment? If I am obligated to use you guys, can you please email me a copy of the agreement, so I have it for my own records?"
"There is no contractual agreement that you have to find work through us. You are more than welcome to continue your job search without our assistance. If we come across other opportunities that may be a fit we will still reach out to you, but there is no exclusivity. I hope this answers your question and feel free to call me if you have any others."
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!
