I would like to clear up a few issues with a teaching contract I am yet to
What is the standard holiday leave for private bushibans?
Is it standard to require a letter from a doctor of a Taipei hospital
that is certified to grant medical certificates for visa purposes to
foreigners living in Taipei? The contract makes no distinction between
several days, weeks off and having to take a day or two off due to a bad
cold. If I were to have a bad cold and need to take 1 day off is it standard
to have to spend most of that day in a hospital getting a letter to justify
taking the time off?
Also, is half pay standard while ill?
Is it standard to not be allowed to take any files or lesson plans out of
the school for any reason and to impose a 10% reduction in bonus for doing
Is it standard to pay a monthly salary on or before the 10th of the next
month? for example in Britain it is standard to pay salary for a month
during or at the end of the month rather than during the next month.
Is it standard to impose 10% reductions in contract completion bonus for
a number of rather ambiguous contractual breaches with no restrictions. The
penalty of 10% reduction is not restricted to one breach. My understanding
of this is that if the school wanted to they could come up with enough
manufactured contractual breaches to do away with the bonus altogether.
Thanks in advance.
