Hi, I am working for company A and got an offer from Comp B and the h1 transfer was filled and got approved, but now i dont want to join Comp B due to some reasons and Comp B is asking me to pay back the h1 filling cost of 8K $. Comp B is from Michigan and I have signed the h1b immigration reimbursement agreement with them while accepting the offer. Kindly advice me on this about is it legal for comp B to ask for 8K reimbursement and if so how much would be the actual cost. I dont think it will be more than 1250$ (premium processing fee).
