We've talked about Training Repayment Agreement Provisions or (TRAPs) recently here. Over on the Law and Political Economy Project Blog, Jonathan Harris has a new post on the subject. He tells the story of Breanne Scally and her class-action lawsuit against PetSmart, who worked briefly as a pet groomer and then was charged $5500 under a TRAP when she quit before the TRAP's two year term had expired.
Jonathan also has a forthcoming article, Consumer Law as Work Law (forthcoming Calif. L. Rev. 2024), about how consumer law encompasses protecting employees from TRAPs and other unfair and deceptive acts and practices.
