  • Sign on Bonus question Texas

    I recently resigned from a position where I was paid a sign on bonus. The language of the offer stated that I would repay it if I left before two years. I left after 18 months. I was told by someone in another company, at the VP level, that in TX there is no legal obligation to actually repay this bonus. I offered to repay a pro-rated portion but my former employer was incensed. I feel I am justified as the job I was hired to do did not exist when I arrived. I.e., I left to come to work for them because they offered me a job that I found out upon arrival did not exist anymore. I didn't get a call giving me a heads up. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    It was not a contract, just an acceptance letter (does that constitute a contract)?

      What do you think about the pro-rated payment?
