Where employers pay for an employee's training, they can require a reasonable minimum period of service after the training is completed. In Strathclyde Regional Council v Neil, the Sheriff Court holds that a contractual provision for repayment by the employee of the costs incurred is not a penalty and can be enforced, provided the amount relates to the loss suffered by the employer.
