Can costs of education be reclaimed?

Costs of education can be reclaimed if these are costs which were actually paid and are provable by the employer (course costs, travel expenses, material costs, possible labour costs), which conveyed special theoretical and practical knowledge to the employee.

The refund must by all means be agreed in writing as soon as all necessary information regarding cost, content and duration of education are stated. Furthermore, the employee must be of full age at the time of the agreement, the commitment period can be a maximum of 5 years (in some exceptions 8 years) and the agreed sum must be refunded in regular monthly instalments.
