I would like to seek advise regarding my training bond problem.
I am currently under a training bond. The contract states that I have to complete 18 months tenure with the company otherwise, I have to pay the full amount of the training cost(php 200k+).
Recently, I have decided to leave the company to transfer to Company2. Company2 is willing to pay for my bond at Company1 but they need the official training receipt as reference. I believe that the demand for the training receipt is only reasonable since it involves a great amount of money.
The effective date of my resignation is only two weeks away and my boss has not yet approved my resignation letter. When I asked about the training receipt, the hiring manager told me that I may not be able to get a copy of it, and she also said that the training contract itself is a basis already for the payment.
I would like to know if I have a legal right to demand for the receipt? Also, what happens if they will not be able to give me a training receipt? I really need the receipt. What if Company1 did not really pay for the training?
Please help me.
