Leaving Employer with Tuition Reimbursement Agreement after a Pay Cut

I am leaving a job where I received tuition reimbursement. I am 2 years into the 3 year period in which I owe money back if I leave and the company has requested I pay back a significant portion of the reimbursements.

The only reason I am leaving is because I felt I had to after a 10% company wide pay cut and benefits cuts that affected my livelihood.

I have tried to negotiate to pay a portion of what they say I owe. Offering to pay the amount they say minus the salary and benefits I would have earned since the pay cuts went into affect.

I feel like they have forced me to leave the company by cutting my pay. Am I legally obligated to pay all or any of what they say I owe?

One issue is whether the agreement may be rescinded due to a material breach (if any) by the employer.

You should discuss the complete factual situation and review the employment contract with a lawyer.
