Hi there, sorry, but I requested a refund as I got an answer from Co-Op...sort of, but I'll try send this anyway just incase and pay my dues. The training bond was initially £1500. The sum they are demanding from me is £1283.20. I do not have a copy of the training bond, but I remember signing it and outloud asking what happens of I don;t sign it, to get the response 'no job'. I cannot remember the exact wording of the little bit of paper I signed, but it was along the lines of 'If you leave stagecoach within 2 years you'll be liable to pay back sums due. £50 a week will be deducted from wages to decrease amount owed'. I cannot remember if the document stated it had to be paid wether job was taken or not.
I've got a draft copy of a letter to send to their solicitors who are demanding money asking for original documents with date and my signature that relates to my employment with Stagecoach to substantiate the claim.
They took my last week of work wage and took it off the £1500 leaving the remaining £1283.20.
