Yes, but announce my resignation today. E.g. if I started on the 15th of September 2012, I announce my resignation to 16 September 2013
I have to inform the company of my new employment now
Based on the sign-on contact I can keep the sign-on when they fire me as long as they don't do it on reasons of misconduct on my side. So do I understand you correctly that I can resign within the 12 months period as long as my leaving date is past 12 months of my start date?
This is basically the question: whether the 12 months in the except above refer to when I can give notice or until when I have to work. That is: does it say if i give notice within 12 months i have to repay or does it only day i have to work 12 months, irrespective of when i give notice? There is no other clause on the notice period etc.
The same paragraph outlines other scenarios under which the company could dismiss me or when I would have to repay, but I am only concerned about the one part I copied above. The contract does not state that it could be deducted bite the amount is also significantly above my monthly pay.
