Is there a statute of limitations on tuition reimbursement requests?

If I left a company 15 months ago, and they are now asking me to pay back a tuition repayment agreement - is that enforceable? They paid an amount per year to me, I signed a repayment agreement, but when they did not come back within a year, my assumption was they were not going to (we don't always go after the money). I ultimately left because the work environment was very "uncomfortable". Now I'm wondering what the right path forward is for me.

The repayment agreement is probably a contract under Ohio law. A party to an Ohio contract has 8 years to file suit for a breach of a written contract.

The suit for a breach of contract is expensive and time consuming, though, so you have some leverage if you want to negotiate a payment schedule.
