Hi Guys, Need some advice with regards to any reliable lawyers, in and abouts JHB. What's happened is I've left me previous vocation spot and the chap there wants to charge me 40 000 for training fees, on a couple courses that I attended. However the training Agreement is based on my contract I had with them as an employee, however the aforementioned contract was only signed a Month after my resignation, I was duly forced to sign it as well as an aknowledgement of Debt, otherwise I would not have been remunerated my Pay for the last month I worked for him. He then, off of my final salary took 17 000 to pay towards the 'loan'. I haven't paid the outstanding loan amounts as signed for as I think it is unfair, not only unfair, but he paid less than R 10 000 for the courses I attended(I have the original invoices) So that's me, if anyone could advise or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it, I clearly don't have the funds at the moment for HUGE lawyer fees, but have been threatened already by the previous Company owner. Another thing worth mentioning is I do not use the relevant training skills any longer at my new job, at all. The skills learnt were to increase the 'income' or chargeable Rate that I was billed out as a consultant. Appreciate the assistance in advance.
