Default I break contract with employment agency?

CA

Can i break contract with employment agency without paying them money?
I signed a contract with employment agency that states if i did not work with their client company for at least 3months then will have to pay a fee equivalent to 1month salary. Is this considered as penalty clause or compensation? or what?

It's obviously a penalty, but it's a legal one and you signed the contract agreeing to it.

I suggest you stick it out for the 3 months and avoid the penalty.

If you had entered an employment contract with a company you are bound to comply with the terms.
