Hello Guys.
I'm a new user, hello everybody first of all.
Then comes the question.
I know in Poland there are some jobs, mostly international ones where you need to stay at least a year...if not you have to pay a fee.

My question is....is there a way to avoid it ? have you never experienced something like that ?
thanks ;)

For example in my job...cause they give you accomodation and training at the beginning when you join the company.
If you don't stay 1 year they say you have to pay back something...but I don't think is doable since you can just force them to fire you...isn't it ?

that must have been part of the deal (contract?) so you'll have to pay up.

To be honest, in Polish employment law its very hard to actually keep someone under contract. I doubt they would even take this further especially if you are a foreigner, did they pay ur rent for the whole year?

no..they pay you rent for 2 weeks only...till you find your own place...so it's not gonna be that much...I was just wondering how they can actually ask you back this money... I know other companies by the way, and they pay even 2-3 months accomodation, and have the same rule in the contract....I was just curious

The rule is there basically to scare people, enforcing it is almost impossible unless the company has somehow paid for you, i.e agency, paid ur rent ect.

Dont worry about it.

worse comes to worse, you can always make them fire you.

which would still be on her as basically she would be breaking the contract by not performing up to par.

A lot depends on the contract. There are legal ways to escape from paying however. But I can't advise until I know you're not e.g. a "jumper" and that you have real reasons for this. And reading your posts I can refrain from asking: why are you planning to quit after this short time?

Imagine it was your company trying to break the contract - I don't think you would be too happy if they tried to find a way to get out of paying you what they owed you.

Perhaps your choices are 1) pay the fee, or 2) honor your contract and stay the whole year. I'm assuming you agreed to these terms when you signed the contract...

I would've thought that they can recover the dosh they spent on you through the simple expedient of deducting monies from your final pay . . .
