But if you leave one company and work for another, the next company will have to pay for your return home. Apart from these, even when you come home on holiday, the issue of paying / not paying for the ticket is as written in the agreement.
In which case it does not get the cost?
If the worker is fired for his own reasons before the end of the contract period or if he leaves the job as per the will of the worker, this cost is not available. But if you have to quit your job due to the employer or you have left after the expiry of the contract period.
