They say: "I left before receiving the bonus..." and that "because you signed the relocation contract". Myself and at least 9 other employees were told that the relocation contracts would be null and void as a result of the sale AND another company taking over our dept.
Thank you for your advice! You are correct in that the relocation contract did state I would be responsible to re-pay the amount should I leave prior to 12 months (100%) and 12-24 months (50%). However, there is NOT an assignability clause in my relocation contract. The company is now doing business under an entirely different name. Matter of fact, all logos and name sake to prior company was immediately removed after the close of sale.
