Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
When did you start your employment there?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Thank you. I would say the key phrase in the clause is “time of leaving after training”, which states that if it is within 18 months then it would be 100% repayable. You could resign before the 19 months is up but you would not have left yet and would continue in employment until your notice period expires, which would then potentially take you outside of the 18 months. After all, you would only ‘leave’ ponce your employment terminates at the end of the notice period. On that basis, you can indeed argue that ‘time of leaving after payment’ would be more than 18 months.
Does this answer your query?
Yes, because to resign still means for your employment to terminate by way of resignation, so the simple act of handing in your notice should not betaken into account, rather then day on which your employment officially terminates and you are deemed to have resigned.
Does this clarify things a bit more for you?
All the best
They can try but a court would look at whether there were fair reasons for dismissal and if it was done without cause, deliberately to make you in default and liable for the fees
