I signed a one year contract with my school in February this year (my second year). I want to give notice now to take up employment at a new school. My contract does not specify a notice period. Some people say that a 20 day notice period is required and others say that a 30 day period is ok. Could you please give me some advice?
The contract also mentions that they hold back a NT$20 000 deposit. As far as I know, this is illegal. It also mentions that we have to teach kindy, which is also illegal. Would this have any bearing on the legality of the contract?
I understand the whole bit about letting the second school apply for a new working visa first, before I do anything else, so my big question is about the notice period if no notice period is specified in the contract.
