Hello! My name is ***** ***** I'll be the Expert assisting you today. Your former employer is suing you for wages that you earned? Also, they want to recover payment for training? Is that correct?
Why do they think they owe you wages that you earned? Did you actually work these hours? Did you fill out a timesheet or any sort? Was there ever an employment agreement that detailed terms of paying back the training amounts?
What have they doubled? How much are they saying you need to repay?
Was there an agreement that you would repay the training if you quit or were fired? Did they give you an itemized invoice for the training repayment?
Unfortunately, the American with Disabilities Act does not offer protection to those who care for people with disabilities. If your employer decided to fire you because you miss work to care for your mother, they are not violating any federal laws.
