1) I was working for a Employer A for past one year.
Unfortunately the contract was outsourced to Philippines. Hence everyone lost the job.
Then you claim that you still have your EP when you were hired by the new company. But apparently you also told us you

It was only after my EP cancellation from Employer A i was informed about this.
As it was already in the offer letter, of which you signed (apparently out of fear of not finding a job so all common sense took a vacation (or you have a masters)
You have executed the worst possible Faux Pas possible, you sign something and then tried to negotiate AFTER signing the contract. From that point, you are to blame for your problems.
It was mentioned in the offer letter that if i leave the company in a year i have to pay the recruitment cost which is equivalent to one month Salary.
As the recruiter charges the company a fee, then why shouldn't the company put a codicol on your employment. This is normal and often is upwards of three months salary. You were luckly they were only asking for one month salary.
I signed it based on the confirmation from HR that this is not applicable to me and I was informed that this would be communicated in mail.
Frankly, anybody in their right mind would have never signed something that needed to be changed. Doesn't make sense to sign two different contracts, does it.
If you haven't started your contract, it's not enforceable, so you can thank your lucky stars. I have to admit, the HR department was not very professional and it's possible that the owner knows nothing of their doing. Some HR people are ruthless and cannot be trusted either. But you attitude is nothing short of abysmal, you wouldn't last a week in my company before being thrown out, based on your hat in hand approach here.
Yes, OffshoreOilDude was a bit out of hand, but Strong Eagle is a moderator and you are just lucky you can still post.
