Leaving Microsoft within a year. On the contract it says that we need to pay back the joining bonus and relocation. Is it strongly enforced or does it depend on the HR?

    Yes, you have to pay back everything. The gross amount. It’s really best to stick it out for the tenure. Besides you don’t want a reputation that you signed up for something and then backed out of an agreement.

    Yeah, you will have to pay back the sign on bonus. Not sure how the taxes work tho. For example, if you have gotten $30k at the start, it was taxed and you might have gotten $15k. But now not sure if you will have to return $30k or $15k
