Is an employment bond valid in US. Most of the H1B consultants who in turn will be employers takes a bond of 1 or 2 years from the Employee. is it valid ?

most of them take bond of 12 to 18 months. If someone asking more than 18 months is not worth going with. You can get several consultants who will ask bond of only 12 months which I feel ok.

You might have misread the subject. My question is about the validity of such things

I read your subject. I also understand what you mean.

I don't know how strict the bonds are. But I said consultants ask for 12 or 18 months bond. 2 years look to me too much.

For such things, I would advise that you consult a lawyer !!


As an aside, California (assuming based on your other topic) is probably the best place to have a legal fight -- if you have to have one, that is... That state seems to have the laws that mostly favor the worker over the company.

"Employment bond" is not really a term we use in the US, but as I understand it the term means "employment contract." The concept of employment contracts on principle are certainly legal, but individual contracts and or clauses may or may not be. It will vary by state and as Henry said you need to consult a lawyer.
