Contract change

I am employed by a Chicago based IT Consulting company since November 2002. Now, my employer wants me to sign an agreement that if I leave without giving 30 days notice I will have to pay $15,000.00 and return all the incentive that I may have received while working on the project. Also, if I decide to go to court than I will also have to pay the attorney's fees incured by the employer. Is this type of agreement legal ?

Based SOLELY on the info you have given, this agreement would be legal in part. If they are trying to force you to return monies that you already earned BEFORE you were given the agreement, they cannot do that. It would be legal as to any future work that you do for the company. It would be best to call me and have me review the entire document. 317-251-1929
