Hi all I'm new to this forum and would like to ask a question on behalf of a friend who has come to me for advise.
The friend in question is stuck between a rock and a hard place at the moment. He attended a course that the company had sent him on. This course is not beneficial to him ultimately as it is a requirement to carry out work on behalf of the company when travelling. Ultimately it serves no benefit for him if he had to leave the company and pursue local based work. He had been told that he is liable to pay back the balance of the course attendance, accommodation during that period along with the travel cost if he had to leave the company. Is this correct?? I don't see how the company can hold him there for a set period in order to compensate for those costs. As i say, this course is a requirement for travel purposes and serves him no benefit. Bare is mind that the course is only also valid for 3 years before it expires.
Thanks in advance
