I recently resigned my position with a small broker/dealer without incident. Everything was fine until I received my final paycheck. It was $435 short because my former firm decided that it wanted to come after money that I had received as reimbursement almost seven months earlier upon completing a CFP course. The owner of the firm and I talked extensively about the reimbursement program before I signed up for the class. Each time he stated that the rep paid the money up front and was reimbursed after passing. I looked through all my contracts, handbooks, etc. and they all say the same. I have called the company several times in the attempt to work this out; however, they seem to be avoiding my calls. I was just wondering if anybody had suggestions on handling this problem or possible legal options.
