I just got my contract in the mail from my new employer. I was told there would be a promissory note to sign because I'm getting a "tuition assistance loan" which is, in essence, a sign on bonus that becomes payable if I don't complete two years of work for them. This note says that they are authorized to take out a certain amount toward the loan each paycheck and at the end of two years, I am responsible for payment of taxes on the full amount. Anyone else out there sign a similar contract? I didn't expect to see anything about paying back the loan while employed. I'm confooosed! What's the real deal?
