In January one of the kids in my class broke his arm whilst in my care. In honestly I pushed the kid - not to hurt him, but just to relate to the class that I was unhappy about what they were doing.
The kid fell and broke his arm. I then went to the parents home to appologise. After a long discussion with them (where I offered to pay compensation), they said it’s ok, and I don’t have to pay as they have medical aid.
I left it at that. My boss called me in last week and said that the parents have now gone to the cops and want NT$100,000 from me.
I am not willing to pay this ridiculous amount and said that I’d leave Taiwan if need be. My boss got very angry and shouted at me - I proceeded to walk out.
This is how I see it. If you were in a bus accident and decide to lay a claim - who do you claim from… the driver or the bus company? Of course the bus company. The bus company then deals with the driver according to the contract they have.
As far as I can see from my contract - all my boss can do is fire me.
What would be the best way forward? Any advise would be appreciated.
