Repayment clauses for employee training costs


I recall hearing or reading recently that it is no longer possible to ask employees to repay the costs of training that they have received if they choose to leave the company. Is this the case? If yes can anyone point me to a site where I could get more information? Thanks

  1. repayment clauses

    I inserted a similar clause for an organisation I used to work for though we never actually implemented it. So, yes you can but it needs to be carefully worded as it could be construed as a restraint of trade and a barrier to an employee from leaving a place of work.

    You will need proper legal advice but it works on the basis of pay us back if you leave NOT…. if you leave you will have to pay us back.

    Try for further assistance or

    Hope this helps.

  2. repayment of training costs
    Steven we have a clause on all our Post Entry training agreements which enable us to claim back all monies spent on this type of training if the employee leaves whilst undertaking the course or within 2 years of receiving the qulification. The amount repayable is reduced for each month worked following qualification/completion
