June Marie Marshall's answer It depends on how the contract is worded. The employer can file a complaint in court for breach of contract. The penalty could be anything from specific performance (leave the employment with the past company) to some kind of money damages (loss of severance pay).

Judges generally grant joint legal custody when the mother and father are able to communicate with each other. That does not seem to be the case here.
