I'm currently under contract with a US-based company. This company puts me through their training program, and at the end of the program, they market me to clients. I then have to get offered a corporation-to-corporation contract opportunity.
Now, I am new to this, but they are marketing me as someone with five years experience. I didn't know that I would be marketed like this prior to signing the contract, and it isn't mentioned in the contract. Is this unethical? This isn't enough to void a contract, correct?
Also, can anyone attest to the legality of the following contract clauses?
- If I break the contract, I may have to return all monies earned during the training period, and I will have to pay $1000 for each month left on the contract.
- After the contract is over, I cannot work for a company whom I have worked for while under my current contract for a full year. (Legal?)
