Just a question regarding canceling a contract. Im an

Hi just a question regarding canceling a contract. Im an overseas nurse from australia and ive been in contact with an agency who can sponsor, find an employer and file eb3 for me to work and migrate in the US. I have recently found a direct employer and i want to cancel my contract with this agency. im just wondering if they can penalise me if i leave even if they havent started the paperworks yet? They havent started processing papers for immigration, no employers yet etc, i just signed an initial contract when i joined and they collected all my documents, no real work has been done yet. Can i still leave? Also they said they will penalise me for direct/indirect cost incured once i terminate my contract, but i wonder, if theres no actual work done since my applcation is still in ints infancy stage, can they still collect money from me?Also, can they file lawsuit against even when im overseas? They dont have office here just in USA and philippines. Thanks.

hello, I was laid off January 31st. During my tenure I was promised that if I referred an employee and they stayed 120 days that I would receive a referral bonus. I have several emails from the company that the bonus would be paid to me. It shouls have been paid to me on January 20th approx. when I reached out agin to be sure when to expect it, the women said she was sorry there was an error and it did not get in the correct payroll time frame due to her error and she was sorry but they would pay it to me on February 15th, and they were sorry for the mix up. In the meantime we got laid off due to a reduction in the staff. And today they are telling me since I am no longer employed since jan 31st they will not pay me ???? PLease help

I worked in New Home Sales. I was 100% commission based with

I worked in New Home Sales. I was 100% commission based with a mandatory 6 day work week. My issue is this: I was terminated by the employer. At the time I was terminated, I had a sales backlog of approximately $70,000 worth of commissioned sales under contract and/or under construction. These contracts are based on approved buyer financing as well as timeliness of build (estimated 12 months build time).JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: My contract stated that I would be paid on any homes that closed (title transfered to buyer) within the next 60 days. However, I fought the employer regarding the basis of termination through the Texas Workforce Commission and won my unemployment benefits even after the employer attempted to appeal the decision 2 times. The employer has a history of terminating their salespeople when they have large backlogs of sales so that they only have to pay their replacement $500 to manage the process as opposed to a Percentage of the Sales Price. Imagine a $400,000 home paying 2% to the sales person but instead they fire the sales person and only pay the next employee $500 to complete the process.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At-will full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, thank you!
