Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
It would not be illegal to require the repayment of relocation costs if the employee signed an agreement specifically assuming such responsibility. However, this responsibility does not arise automatically as a matter of law. If an employee does not sign an agreement to repay relocation costs, then an employer has no basis whatsoever to demand repayment. The employer assumes the risk that they will spend money on an employee who will then leave. This is the nature of business.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
