Having just left and organisation to take up a new role, I have been asked by my old company to repay the course fees.

The repayment is acknowledged and I do not have an issue with this. However the company are now saying that the fees must be repaid by 31 March 2007. However the ‘contract’ I signed did not have any repayment periods specified at all. I was hoping they would have been open to negotiation to make the repayments over a longer term, however they refuse and are threatening legal proceedings if I do not acknowledge that I will repay by the end of march.

I was not made aware of any customs by the company to repay by the start of the financial year. I also thought that a signed contract could not have terms added to it once it had been originally signed?

Any thoughts or directions would be much appreciated.
