  1. This is the training agreement. Please have a look at section 14, if I quit because they do not provide me with enough work, do I still have to pay for the training? I think, to my understanding section 14 undoes the agreement if the contractor quits for the reason of not being given enough work? Am I wrong?

  2. I have just gone through the contract again and I found this: "Where the agreement is terminated as a result of Company being unable to provide sufficient work for an extended period, this will be regarded as a reason for early termination of the Agreement" Does this mean I am off the hook? Does it mean I don't have to pay if I am not given enough work? Thanks
  3. Hi everyone, Any advice would be highly appreciated!! The situation is as follows less than 3 months ago I have started as a subcontractor for a company initially I was given training for which I have signed a training contract stating that if I leave earlier then 6 months I will have to repay for the training! Because the work is on price, I was promised 6 jobs on average a day, not in the contract, but I have a letter saying that "Their engineers complete 6 jobs on average a day", that is the only reason I have started the job for, them 6 jobs. But after month and a half and less than 4 jobs on average a day and not making enough to support my family I have decided to quit. I have told them this is the only reason I am quitting . My question is: Is there a legal way for me not to pay for the training? Thanks for your help in advance!
