i badly need help. i signed a job contract and the effective date of my employment is on June 2. i personally went to the company ( talked to the HR head) to show respect and give thanks for the opportunity and she said that it's okay but i need to pay a fine because there is a clause in the contract that states: "in the event that i do not report to work on the agreed effective date, we shall hold you liable for the lquidated damages in the amount equivalent to what would have been 2 month's salary as stated, in addition to such other amounts or damages that the company may be entitled to."
i haven't passed any requirements yet but there's no clause in the contract that says "failure to comply to pass the reqs shall invalidate the contract"
can i do something about it? i dont have money to pay for it. please help.
