Cary, NC asked in Employment Law for North Carolina

Q: Is my relocation repayment agreement enforceable in this situation?

I transferred to another state with my existing employer of 9 years and was given a relocation package. It had a 2 year repayment agreement with a prorated amount due each month starting in year two. The division I worked in was recently dissolved and I was offered a new position with considerably more travel involved. If I leave prior to the two year mark, how enforceable is the repayment agreement, considering the job I moved for no longer exists?

A: The answer depends on the language of the repayment agreement. The repayment agreement is just a contract. There are usually terms that address broad situations, such as being transferred to a position that is or is not comparable to your current position. You should look at the Agreement and see what state laws govern the terms. Then contact a lawyer in that state to review the terms given your specific situation.
