  • Scotland ex employer taking me to small claims

    Hi all

    Need some advice
    My ex employer is threatening to take me to court for education fees I am owe them.

    I have tried 3 times to ask for a repayment plan and he has refused all 3 times.*

    I resigned my position as I had heard management were being nasty about employees including myself. I said this in my resignation letter and have since found my ex employer to be highly unreasonable.

    I think they are doing this to try and get me a ccj on my record out of spite.

    I have never disputed paying them back just on a monthly payment as they have used my final wage for some fees and want the other thousand right away which I cannot afford as I have no wages.*

    I have the education agreement and it does not state that Monet owed needs to be paid in full on leaving?

    Does anybody have any idea how I would fair on court I do not want a ccj on my record but cannot afford to pay the full amount.

    What does the education agreement actually say? Does it mention anywhere about repayment of fees? If not, the employer cannot force you to repay them unless it was specifcially agreed.

      Yes I have the agreement, it does state I would need to pay it back in full if I left, I am not disputing giving him the money, but no where does it state no repayment plan wouldn't be offered.*
      As we all know most companies offer a repayment plan before court action. I think he is doing this as he knows I cant afford one payment if a thousand pounds. I was hoping to pay him 200 a month.*
      There is no need to go to court. I dont understand what he thinks he will achieve apart from getting a mark on my credit file as if the court gives me time to pay he will still have to wait on his money?
