I received tuition reimbursement from my employer last year 2012 totaling $1800. According to all documents that have been signed by management and myself, I do not need to pay back the reimbursement if I have not received a degree. It is now 2013 and I have provided my employer with my two weeks notice. I still have not received a degree. I have been contacted by my HR department and have been told that I will need to pay back all of the tuition reimbursement regardless of whether or not I have received a degree because the company feels that they have invested in me. They have offered my the option of receiving my last paycheck with my hours reduced to a hourly rate of the minimum wage in TX and the difference going toward the reimbursement. Do I have a valid legal case?
