My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: South Dakota
I recently took a job in South Dakota that leaves me 2000 miles away from my family in CA. I am having problems with my family right now that could possibly destroy my family, so I need to get back home and take care of things. When I was hired at the company, I was required to sign a training contract. In my profession, there are certian things that have to be done in order for me to do my job per the regulations we are governed under. I am a pilot, and each airplane requires specific training to be able to operate it. The contract is for $8500. Are training contracts like this legally enforceable in SD? I know they aren't in California, but I know nothing about the state of South Dakota, where the company is based. If you know what I can do, I would really appreciate it if you could either post some links up for me to look at. I am also planning on contacting an employment attourney in SD to see what I can do about this. Thanks in advance.
