Hi, I could really do with some advice. I am due to finish my current job this Friday coming. At the start of my employment I started a course, which my employer paid for. I was pressured into signing a contract to say that if I left within a certain amount of time, I would have to pay back the course fees. The wording in my contract says: "The company will reimburse (title of course) fees of £1500.00. These must be repaid if the employee should: 1. Leave the employment of the company prior to achieving the qualification, or for a period of 6 months after completing the course 2. Fail to complete the course for which the fees have been paid The sum repayable will be reduced pro rata by 1/18th for each month from the date of this contract." Yesterday afternoon I checked my bank account and I had only received part of my wages. I asked my manager about this and he said, "I've docked your wages, taking the remaining money owed from the course." I mentioned to him this was illegal and he has now pressured me into paying back the remaining balance over 4 months. So from this months pay he has docked 1/4, then he wants 3 cheques to cover the remaining money. In my contract there is no mention of paying back the money before I left or within a certain time frame. What can I do about my wages being docked and can he inforce the 4 month rule? I also know the company I work for copied and pasted their employment contract from a website, I've been doing some research on employment contracts and found: "Employment contracts not only provide important protection for employers in defining the working relationship and obligations between employer and employee, but a minimum written statement of terms and conditions of employment is a legal requirement on employers." My employment contract however does not mention anything about a Pension: "As a minimum an employer must indicate whether a contracting out certificate is in force. If it is details of the alternative pension scheme should be given." or about Collective Agreements: "Details of all collective agreements which directly affect the terms and conditions of employment should be given. If there are no collective agreements in force this fact still needs to be stated." Does this then make the employment contract void? Any help on this subject would be much appreciated. Thanks.
