I have a couple of questions re. my contract. Any assistance would be appreciated.
My contract includes accomodation. This turned out to be a dirty room, with a mattress on the floor, in the middle of the school. The owners would not give me a key to the front door. If I wanted to stay out after 10pm at night I had to make special arrangements to get back in. I have since moved and am paying for my own accomdation. The owners of the school simply feel that I was too “fussy”, and do not feel that they have broken the contract. Do I have any recourse?
I get paid monthtly for 85 teaching hours and 20 office hours. I also get paid for holidays. There is what I do not understand. In December I did not work Christmas Day. Normally I would have worked five hours. Athough I am supposed to be paid for the holiday, the five hours I normally worked were not counted in my monthy hours. This meant that the five hours overtime that I worked counted into the 85 hours. This meant I received no overtime pay. This does not seem right to me, but again the owner is adamant that she has calculated my pay correctly.
Thanks in advance for any help.
