I’ve decided to break my 1 year, first-time contract early. Although I wanted to leave ASAP, I agreed to stay on for 5 more weeks to avoid conflict.
I’ve just received my termination documents from my school, which I plan on using for submitting a 6-month job seeking visa.
Here’s my problem: since I’ve put in notice, I am experiencing retaliation from my branch, and have been reduced to only 10-12 teaching hours per week, which of my knowledge is a breach of MOL article 42. As a result, I intend to leave the school 3 weeks before the “last day of employment” which is stated on the termination doc.
I have two questions:
If I apply for my extension visa before I leave early (three weeks before stated on doc) will this effect my visa application? I figure since I have the schedules and hourly statements showing I’m given less than 14 hour/week I have fair reason to leave early.
Do I have any legal recourse or legal assistance I can seek re: Article 42? I’m not a litigious person by any means, however my school has been a veritably abusive shit show from day 1 and, considering this recent retaliation, have finally had enough of being so amicable.
Thanks for you help.
