I am 20 months into a 36 mo contract w/major financial

Customer Question

I am 20 months into a 36 mo contract w/major financial institute who also moved me to another province for the current job. I have worked 6 years in total for this company. What could I expect for financial reimbursements/obligations due the company should I decide to leave? I don't see anything specific referenced in the actual contract.

Does the contract allow for early termination?

Does it talk about relocation fees?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
No, it does not discuss/allow early termination. No, it does not reference relocation fees as an expense to the employee. I am aware of the cost of relocation as I submitted the expense claim forms. I am in banking, each of our roles have an expected "time on job" aka contract before seeking promotion for the next level or role. I have recently been allowed to apply for other roles.

But would you be able to do that if you terminate your fixed term contract early?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Within the company there would be no issue. I am considering leaving the company hence the concern.
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Thank you, ***** ***** the class action lawyers who they would recommend. I'd would feel best if my actual contract were reviewed and/or the legal advice is based on experience with big banks.
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 12 months ago.

Yes. You are correct. You need a lawyer to review the contract and actual legal advice as opposed to general legal information.
