Before I respond to your inquiry, I must state that we have not spoken, I have not reviewed the relevant documents and facts, and I do not represent you. Therefore, my discussion below is not a legal opinion, but is informational only. Finally, my discussion applies only to issues to which Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Federal law applies, unless otherwise specified.

That being said,the answer depends on the language of your contract. If the issue is not addressed, then it is likely that the employer will continue to owe you the tuition reimbursement. If the new owner of the division (or the division itself, if it is going to be free-standing) assumes your contract, then the obligation will travel with the division.
