Hi,

So let me start by saying that I found a job in Czech Republic and have only been here two weeks. I told to sign a contract in which 2 months noticed had to be given. I had family issues come up and when I called in to take the day off to figure things out I was told no. I let slip that I may have to leave to attend to the family problems. Well I got an email from the company saying that if I dont show up I would have to pay them and they will take me to court and they will get six months pay plus loss of profits.

Now here is the thing... I don't have a work permit nor did they plan to get me one. My contract was only for 3 months. And they lied on the contract so they could pay less taxes to the government.

Honestly I don't think they can take me to court since they hired me illegally.

Can anyone help?

See my reply in CR forum.

They can't take you to court.
Nor will you have any recourse WHEN they don't pay you.
Bad idea to get into such a dodgy situation!!!
