I am currently going through a green card process with my company and they are asking me to sign an agreement, where my notice period is increased to 6 months and if I leave within 3 years, I have to repay the costs associated with my application. (Max 7k). Is this a standard practice?

Wow, that’s little extreme. Mind telling what company you work for?

Sorry, it’s a smaller tech consultancy, so revealing it would give too much away.

This practice always strikes me as exploitative. I understand the desire to reduce companies making big investments in people for them to turn around and just leave. My issue is that the relationship is so one sided. The employee is in no position to negotiate the agreement and once it’s signed you are bound to the company even if they drag their feet on processing your application.

Agree

Yep. Usually 2 months and 2 years though, not 6 months and 3 years.

Not at EY ( in my personal experience). But I’ve seen some firms place restrictions , as they see it as an investment. But 6 months and 3 years is extreme
