I have finished the first contract at my cram school and signed on for a second year. At the end of a contract the school pays you an accumulative bonus for all the classes you loose no students for and continue on to the next level, the more students the more the bonus is. The school and myself have copies and records of these bonuses and how many students I kept on to stay. Months ago, right before I signed my second contract to work there, the head secretary had told me the school would deposit the bonus with my last months pay of my first contract. Although, they had paid me my salary but did not include my end of contract bonus. When I asked the head secretary she told me it was the owner who had to deposit the money into my account. When I asked the owner she lied and said the head secretary had to deposit the money into my account. The past two weeks they have been telling me to ask the other about who has to pay me my bonus.
Now I work at a very small cram school, there are only 3 branches in Taiwan, and the owner is very hands on with all the schools. She is know to be very manipulative and not do everything by the books and will lie to cover it up. I am wondering what my legal actions are to get the money that is owed to me. It is about 600 USD they owe me. Is there a branch of government I can call, or is this a matter to do with lawyers. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
