I recently quit my Job in Belgium and moved to Canada. During my employment in Belgium, the company had paid for my annual train pass as a benefit. Now I have received an email from them demanding me to reimburse them with the cost of train pass for the remaining part of the year (which is around $2000!).
Two questions: 1. Is it fair for them to ask for this money? I mean, I cannot use that benefit anymore (as I have left Belgium) and it is not my fault that train passes are issued in yearly basis. 2. If I decline to pay this money, would I be in trouble? Could they sue me?
