    independent clause questions

    in the sentence below, does the clause within the commas depend upon the beginning clause?

    "In the event the Company office in which you are employed is closed and you are not offered employment at the same level elsewhere with the Company, or if your employment is terminated by the Company, you may accept emloyment without reimbursement to the Company of your training costs as provided in the paragraph above."

    more specifically, would the individual have to pay the training costs if they were terminated for other reasons than the office being closed? this is in an actual contract. i have change the actual name of the company to "Company." thanks for any imput.

    __________________________________________________ ___________-


    What a confusing sentence!!!

    Does it mean:

    You may accept employment, but not get reimbursed by the Company for training costs if:

    Your office is closed.
    You are not offered employment in another department
    Your employment is terminated.

    Re: independent clause questions

    you may accept employment without reimbursement to the Company of your training costs as provided in the paragraph above."


    It reads to me as though the previous paragraph laid down that you have to reimburse the company for training costs if you leave them for your own reasons, but that you will not have to reimburse them if the company closes the office in which you work, you are not offered a similar position in the company or the company dismisses you.
