Something else that I remember a few years ago were companies that put employees
through training courses as part of their employment, but then demanded that
the employee repay the cost of any training if they left within 3 years.
This meant that to leave the company someone had to pay several thousands for
courses - some of which they never wanted to go on in the first place.

Does this sort of thing still happen ?
