Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

I am sorry, but what help do you need? FMLA says an employee is entitled to 12 weeks of job protection. Do you have an employment contract that provides you have a right to more protection than FMLA provides?

This is an employment contract question. When hiring new
When hiring new employees--a would-be employee signs the contract to begin a new position, but backs out before starting. Can a clause in the contract require that would be employee to pay a fee for backing out of the obligation? The purpose of the fee would be to help the employer quickly find a replacement. In other words, Is it legal to put a penalty or "liquidated damages" clause in an employment contract that states that if after signing the contract the would be employee backs out and does not begin employment as they promised--then the contract requires the employee who reneged to pay the would be EMPLOYER a fee or liquidated damages so that the employer can find another employee to replace the one that did not fulfill the contract. Thank you. … read more
