I have read through the previous posts and have heard that they seem laid back, and I’m wondering if this laid back attitude is the reason for the vague contract, or should I be worried?
- The contract at this school is less than a single page.
Contract (shorthand version):
- Follow Taiwanese law
- Taxes will be deducted as per standard Taiwanese law
- $20,000 contract cancellation penalty, unless you give them two months’ notice, then it’s fine.
- 2 months before the end of the contract you need to tell them officially whether you’re going to renew or not.
No mention of them applying for an ARC for me (or if it will be deducted from my pay), nothing about NHI, or how much I will have to pay for it. Nothing about vacation time. Nothing that states that my maximum mandatory hours will be 15 (as verbally agreed upon)…
I haven’t signed it yet, but I’m wondering if I should write a contract addendum and present it to them… or is it unnecessary to be concerned with this? Has anyone been screwed over
Thanks in advance.
