Re: Auto Bonding ?

Hi, I wonder if the company has the rights to ask for repayment of the courses worth $4500? The issue is that I do not sign any agreement to be bonded and also I have attended the course without exam.
In my employment letter written the terms for "tuition". Does tuition = course?
If the handbook have not written clearly, do I need to pay?
But in the course approval needs the Manager & HR to both sign only can be approved.
The question is do i have to pay them and do they have the rights to ask from me? Does labour law protect this?
Thanks.

I don't think this has anything to do with labour law. You better consult a lawyer if they want you to pay.

Thanks Siew!
But why nothing to do with labour law? I thought labour law supposed to protect employee from having employer simply apply unreasonable rules to the employee?
Since we touch on this, will labour law disqualify the unreasonable rules implemented by a company?

I mean when you sign a bond, it becomes a contract. If the company wants to sue on that contract, they may have to go to civil court. You said, you did not sign the agreement or bond, then why worry?
