Relocation Expenses

My husband signed a written job offer, which included relocation money. He has email correspondence from them where he asked how the relocation money worked. They said he will have to fill out an expense report when he arrived and that it will be for the full amount. Saying he will not need to submit receipts. Now we have relocated 900 miles away and he just started the job. They laid off all of their HR department on his second day and now he is being told that they will "look into" his claim for relocation expenses. If they do not follow through with this part of their written offer, do we have a breach? We would be fine if they would just reimburse what we spent to get here. Living in Louisiana, but company located in Mississippi.

You have a good question. If there is an agreement for the payment of these relocation expenses then this may be a claim for wages. The payment of wages is not only a legal and contractual obligation, but a moral one. If you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to call me or email me to set up a time to meet. I don't charge consultation fees for cases like this.
