We have a small firm (10 people) and have recently employed a trainee, who will be attending day release for up to three years. This is quite an investment for us and it has been suggested by partners that we should get the new employee to sign an agreement for payback of costs if they leave during / on completion of the course (for a period of time).

Can anyone shed any light on the pitfalls, and would anyone have an example agreement they would be willing to share?

Many thanks
