I just received my first real job offer working as an engineer in a rotational program. The company extended the offer letter along with other information and documents about two months ago. In those documents, was an agreement that stated that the employer would provide a fully furnished apartment for each rotation (I will be traveling to three different locations within a 2 year period). Recently, the local HR rep has told me that they are actually revamping the contract to state that the employee (myself) is responsible for finding housing for the first rotation location,but some stipend will be provided. The stipend ranges from (at least what I’ve been told by the local rep) from 3,000 to 6,000. If the amount is on the lower end, this will not cover average housing in the first location’s area.
My question is: what can/should I do? I signed all of the contracts given to me and have sent them back to the employer. To my understanding, that should be binding and they should be responsible for housing.
I appreciate any sort of advice or any recommendations on what to do/who to reach out to. Thanks!
