My kindergarten refuses to let me go home to America to visit my elderly grandparents. The problem is that I can only get a flight a certain week in July (basically the ticket expires before then and I lose that money) and that would mean missing the kindergarten graduation ceremony. They said that if I take the time off that it would be in breach of contract and I would lose half a month’s pay. I already have the ticket, and they know this, so they gave me a guilt trip and they’re making me work more hours unpaid. I’m quite sick of it and I really don’t want to work without getting paid. If they take a half month’s pay from me is it possible to get it back? Is this even legal? I am putting up with it because its a lot of money to lose and I don’t want to deal with a lot of paperwork and months of waiting to get my money. What recourse do I have?
I’d rather keep the name of this school unnamed because everything is pending.
