Find answers to your legal question.

Is there a law that requires employers to provide copies of documents the employee signed?

I have recently ended a job I had for about 3 months. Since I was working and studying at a University, my previous employer now claims that I owe her for education and book expenses but I never signed anything regarding fees.

Is there a law that would require her to provide copies of every document I have signed regarding this matter since she now intends to take me to court?


It depends on what your general contract to be employed there says. If it says that you are bound by the employee handbook, for example, and there are 4 pages in that document about how education expenses are handled, you will need to refer to that. I doubt she would be threatening you if she doesn't think she has cause to back her up.
