I understand the need to have a contract to repay the costs of training but when do the costs become excessive?
I was given an “Agreement to Repay Costs of Training” letter to sign. While I have no intention to leave ML, I don’t like the feeling of being an indentured servant. The ML contract requires that I stay 32-months (8-months pre=production + 24-months production) in order to leave without needing to repay costs of training. Any service period less than 20-months requires repayment of $38K and any service over 20-months but under 32-months requires $19K. Aren’t these payback amounts and timeframes excessive? How binding are these contracts? My experience would indicate that they don’t stand up well in court
The contract says that they can even go after me for repayment should I be terminated. Does anyone know of a case where their office actually pursued repayment for any causes?
