Hyattsville, MD asked in Employment Law for Maryland

Q: HELP: Ex boss/ friend threatening to sue me and wants me to pay 4500 in training reimbursement fees?!

I’m dumb and don’t remember what I signed. Can I ask for a copy of my contracts signed when I first was employed?? Wants me to pay 4500 for training reimbursement (which is a lot for the training), can I ask for a copy of the contract without paying for it later if I can’t afford to pay the bogus reimbursement fees? Also can she do that…

A: Of course you are entitled to see all contracts and invoices to support the basis and amount of her claim. Demand it. Tell her upon receipt of all the proof for her claim, and the exact written terms of the contract that spell out your and her obligations, you will review the matter with counsel and will respond promptly. If she sends you the documentation, take it to a lawyer to review and get advice on how to respond and whether you owe any money or not.
