or pay out of your own pocket:
if you miss one day of work?
if you get seriously sick/injured and miss a few days of work?
if you want to go on vacation?
my boss is trying to put in a clause in a contract that states i would have to pay ‘x’ amount of NT for each hour missed. some days i have up to 8 class hours, and in signing this contract, if i miss one thursday, id lose about 1/6 of my monthly wage. absolutely ridiculous, but i do realize employers face penalties when they take contracts from outside schools, businesses, etc., when the teacher doesnt show up. i also realize they would have to pay to find a substitute.
i dont know what to do, or what a compromise would look like. any help would be appreciated. thanks
