Dorta v. SpecialtyCare, Inc. is a class action case filed in the Middle District of Tennesee alleging that SpecialtyCare is violating state and federal law by requiring its employees to sign a training repayment agreement provision (“TRAP”) that requires them to go into up to $30,000 of debt for training. This debt continues to grow for years after workers finish their training, and is only forgivable if employees work for SpecialtyCare for three years. The case alleges that this debt isn’t true reimbursement for training expenses–rather, it’s intended to keep employees stuck in demanding jobs with low pay.

Training Repayment Agreement Provisions, or TRAPs, are contracts that require employees to work for their employer for a certain period of time or else repay their employer for the cost of “free” training provided on the job. Where the training provided is primarily for the benefit of the employer or does not provide a transferable credential, or where the TRAP is provided to the employee without certain required disclosures, it may violate state or federal law.
