I technically do SAT and AP tutoring, but since it’s one one of those Cram-school type deals I’m posting here. I’ve been looking for some part-time work for the last few months. Last month, back in August I found something, and signed a contract offering 900 per hour.
The problem is they claimed at the time that the classes were just forming and so they didn’t have enough hours to give me. I’ve e-mailed back and forth with the person in charge (actually an Australian - not Taiwanese) and basically they refuse to give me any hours. I’ve never actually gone to work with them since signing the contract.
I told them that if they’re not going to give me hours, then I’m going to formally quit. But they say that if I quit, they will fine me 15k.
Do I have any recourse here since I signed the contract? Or should I just work elsewhere since it looks like they won’t give me hours anyhow.
