    Question Training cost agreement

    So I'm working for this poor excuse of a company and have been offered a start at a better company, they only just put me on my part 1 last September and bung me with a couple of labourers and told me to get on with (which is wrong I know) doing a part 2 job and getting paid pennies for it!!! I signed a training cost agreement...just wonder if they could actually deduct my wages if I leave

    The way my company does it is if you hand in a notice, whether it's one week or two, they take your holidays or deduct so much from our week in arrears payment. If the other company is better I would take the hit with a bit payment cause in the long run you'll end up better off. Good luck with it

    don't know if your holiday accrument starts from January but I would tell them your back is knackered don't work the weekend with them and start with the other firm on the Monday,get your money of them on the Thursday and tell them your jacking in because you not prepared to do a part 2 job for part 1 money and safety reasons simples

    Unfortunately, I would imagine that a young scaffolder working for a street firm will have no representation from any organisation. That said, the law is on your side as the agreement is not worth the paper it's written on.

    Truly Sad Imk, When I Started Everyone Was Represented By The Union, In Fact No Firm Would Have Tried This Crap, Cause Thats All It Is Utter Crap.

    Thanks for the replies guys ... Starting my new job tomorrow !!!! What's annoying me most is that I was off just before the Christmas hols and the d**ks paid me ssp "by accident" and I haven't got that yet so I would imagine they are gonna hold on to that ... Well at least try!!!
