Please help on this matter:
We have a Systems Engineer who have a training bond for two years and now intends to resign. He found out that the training cost indicated in his contract was not the actual cost of the training he attended (it is lesser than the contract cost). His information was coming directly from the training provider by giving him the copy of the actual Purchase Order made by the company. Now that he is leaving the company, he is demanding to pay only the actual training cost. The management however, wants to be firm in making him pay the value indicated in the contract that he signed.
Given the scenario, what is the best thing to do? Can we just compute according to the actual training cost or can we insist him to pay the amount in the contract? What can be the repercussion?
Your advise will be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
