Legal Question in Employment Law in Maryland

I received educational assistance from Walgreens during pharmacy school. In 2007 I received $6500 and committed to work for 4 years after graduation. Upon graduation (2010) I applied for full-time employment with Walgreens, but I was not hired. Now 3 years later, I received a letter informing me I must pay pack the $6500 within 30 days. Do I have any grounds for contesting this demand?

Your question is basically a contract question and will depend in great part on the specific wording of your tuition agreement. In some cases, a demand made years later will be unenforceable due to the passage of time, though in some situations (such as with contracts under seal) this can be extended for longer than 3 years. It is difficult to analyze without knowing the full situation and reviewing the documents.

While I hope the general legal information above helps, it does not substitute for getting legal advice on the specifics of your situation.
