Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
When did you first owe the employer this money? When did you quit training?
The employer can certainly sue you for the money. It is not just loans that can be sued for.
And the limitation period is 6 years so the collection agency will not only file a report that will harm your credit rating but most likely will sue you.
And it is likely that they will sue you in NL given that is where you work and where your debt to the employer, who is located there arose.
I am sorry this is the last thing you wanted to hear but I know you want and certainly need the correct answer.
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
You would be served in NS but the laws of NL apply and if there is a trial it would be there.
You could attend by way of telephone or web conference.
