I wonder if anyone can offer advice on the following situation. I recently was hired on as a teacher at a kindergarten. The conditions and treatment are not what I expected, or what I was told. I would like to leave this horrid school ASAP. I signed a 6 mo. contract, and if I break it, what can my employer do to get revenge? I understand that the employer can withhold pay, but what can they do legally?
I hold a marriage ARC and pay no taxes with this school. The school in question seems pretty dodgy, I’m not sure if they are even a legal kindergarten. I know they don’t have a buxiban license for their evening classes. and it appears they don’t have any Ministy of Education or Ministry of Health certification that I have seen in other kindies.
As I understand it, it is still illegal for foreigners to teach at kindergartens. If this is still true, then is not the contract null and void to start with?
Please advise on any problems that I may encounter if I break this contract.
Thanks for any input.
