I am a recent graduate who started a new job about a month and a half ago. The job ended up being different from what I expected and what I was led to believe by recruiters, and I want to find a new job more in line with my career prospects. The company has spent significant amount of money relocating me; I did not have to spend a single cent out of pocket for relocation purposes that was not reimbursed in some way. I signed an agreement that I would pay back these expenditures if I voluntarily left within 6 months of deposit (about 5.5 months from today; I've been working for 6 weeks).
I am currently in the process of finding a new job, but I do not know the exact amount of money I would owe to my current employer if I quit. I am worried that asking about this will indicate to the company that I am planning on leaving, which may have consequences. Is it a bad idea to ask my company how much money I would owe if I left within the time frame of this contract?
