I did not receive a contract so I would say no. The agreement for the education did not say this either.
I am not sure how to answer the second question. I do not know what you mean by bought the corporation. The previous owner put the company up for sale and the newer owners bought it and changed the name of the company. I did notice through the transision that all outstanding payables and receivable up to the date of new ownership was still the responsibility of the original owner.
Does this help?
As previous mentioned I did not sign a contract when I started with this company and when the company changed ownership. When I started the company it was called A.D. Rutherford & Co. Ltd and when I ended my employment it was called A.D. Rutherford Int'l Inc. When the company switched over I did not sign any papers or contract. The agreement for the education is under A.D. Rutherford & Co. Ltd but A.D. Rutherford Int'l Inc is asking for the money to be refunded back to them. I do know the previous owner and belive this is his money not the new owners. If I go to the previous owner and ask if they will forgive this repayment and if they agree would this make a difference?
