Hi everyone. So I’ve been here for about a month and am still on my 90 day stamp on my passport while waiting for my job to process my ARC. While I love living in the city, the job which I secured from abroad is an absolute nightmare. I’m regularly asked to come in two unpaid hours before teaching and in order to get my lessons written in their format, I’m looking at many more unpaid hours. Also the regulations of the school are absurdly meticulous and nitpicky. This isn’t my first teaching job, and I know well enough to know that this school is a losing situation. I’m highly qualified and know I can do better than this and even have other interviews lined up, but I need to break the contract which I stupidly signed upon arrival.
Unfortunately, the contract stipulates that I must serve out a 60 day notice period and that they may be able to deduct money or even go after me in court as a punitive response for breaking my contract which would cause them to potentially need to cancel classes. What I’m wondering is, what’s the most efficient way to get out of this without having to be subject to legal action and not end up on some employment blacklist.
Thanks in advance for your time and assistance!!!
