What is considered the day I “voluntarily leave” the company? The day I give the notice or the day I actually leave the company?
Background is I have a payback agreement with my current employer that says:
Should you voluntarily leave the company before the completion of 18 months of service from your visa issue date, you shall reimburse the company all visa cost.
I have 8-week notice period and, to avoid paying the visa cost, I’m wondering whether:
- I should give the notice where my last day will be outside of that 18-month notice period, or
- I should give the notice after the 18-month period ends.
