Firm Turns the Tables on Training Expense Demand
Downriver client Tyler came to our office because his former employer was attempting to collect training expenses from him. The former employer had gone so far as to hire multiple law firms to collect the alleged debt.
Upon looking into the situation, our attorneys found that not only did Tyler not owe them a dime, they in fact owed him money!
Our attorneys took steps to resolve the matter without the need for litigation, but, as employers often do, the company refused to budge until a lawsuit was filed.
Once our lawsuit was filed, we were able to demonstrate to the employer how the company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act. The company had failed to pay Tyler his last paycheck and regularly did not pay him for time that he worked from home. After demonstrating this to the employer, the employer settled Tyler’s claims.
Not only did we get them to agree to never try to collect training expenses from Tyler, they paid an amount that covered the paycheck. The office was able to get Tyler this all at no cost to him!
Tyler was extremely satisfied with how we handled his case.
“I’ve told my family and friends that if they ever need a lawyer, I would recommend the Law Offices of Bryan Yaldou,” Tyler said.
We are proud to help hardworking clients like Tyler. Remember, just because your employer does something, it does not make it right, let alone legal. If you think your employer has violated the law, it’s always best to talk to an attorney about the situation.

I was a weepy mess when I first met with Mr. Yaldou, feeling quite overwhelmed, helpless and embarrassed at the thought of having to file for bankruptcy.
"Mr. Yaldou was comforting and reassuring, taking me under his wing much like a "big brother". He, Nick Chambers, Lisa Segur, and his entire legal staff, were never too busy to answer my questions and respond to my emails throughout the entire (successful) bankruptcy process. Everyone was absolutely wonderful!!! If you're looking for a knowledgeable, top-notch legal team, then I highly recommend Yaldou Law."
"Did great job on my case was very helpful and knowledgeable he knew what he was doing call back at two maybe three times and still very helpful after the case was finished."
Bryan is an excellent attorney!
"He has an extremely, professional, knowledgable manner and yet is kind and understanding. He puts you immediately at ease and you feel free to talk to him about all the deepest and most embarrassing things without feeling like he is judging you, in fact that he understands and empathizes with you. He is very through and explains every step of the process and what to expect - both good and possible bad which I really liked because I don't like a rosy picture painted for me when a potentially bad situation might arise. I would highly recommend him...in fact - do yourself a favor and just go straight to him and forget shopping around as you won't find a better champion than Bryan! By the way, I had never met Bryan, just saw his sign and decided to stop - the best decision I ever made!"
Bryan is so friendly and always available to answer any questions you may have.
"My case was handled efficiently and with ease. I appreciated always being informed and knowing what the next step would be. Overall, I’d absolutely recommend him to anyone in search of a quality attorney."
