The CEO of our company just told a group of veteran employees that he is requiring them to register for a Six Sigma certification course at the EMPLOYEE'S expense. He wants the employees to be registered for their chosen course in two weeks.
This training has never been required before. Sure, it will benefit both the employee and the employer, but the deadline is very sudden and the cost to the employee is high (over $500 each, at least).
We are in Texas, and of course do not have any sort of employment contract. The employees in question are all hourly non-exempt. All of these employee have been employed at this company for over a year, and there are not expectations in our job descriptions, offer letters, etc. for this type of thing.
Bottom line, can the boss require this at the employee's expense?
