I joined one of the trusts around 7 months ago and they gave me incentives around 2500 pounds after joining.
When I prepared myself to search for another job as my contract will be ending , the HR told me that I have to pay back all the incentives that they gave me as you r leaving before the end of your contract! As we gave u the incentive to stay till the end of the contract.
Before accepting the job no one mentioned that to me , they just said we will give u incentive.
Is it true that I have to pay back the 2500 ?
I could not find any sentence in the contract that says so!
Is there any legal obligation for me to do that ?!
Is it really something that should be done ?
Has anyone been through a same situation before?
Go through all the ten or twenty forms that a new starter has to sign: it’s in the fine print somewhere. Why didn’t you clarify before you accepted the incentive?
You should pay it back. Else, just stay until the end of your contract.
