I arrived here last August and began working at Kojen. I definitely have my reservations about Kojen, similar to those that have been discussed elsewhere on this site. So last month, I quit.
I found a great new job at one of those hard-core foreign run buxibans. It’s actually a spin-off of the Modawei type. I don’t want to name names (or debate the merits of that system), because I really liked the school up until 5:10 today, after 2 weeks of working there and about a month of training.
My boss had mentioned several times that payday was this Saturday. I was eagerly waiting for my relatively huge paycheck. Today, after my class, he sat me down and explained that actually, he was going to hold my pay for these two weeks as a deposit. It’s “school policy,” apparently. I’m not pleased, to say the least.
This is just a word of warning – I’ve heard many people complain about having to pay deposits up front, but who ever heard of a deposit being taken out of your paycheck, without warning, after 6 weeks of interaction (two of which were solid teaching) at the school? It can happen, apparently…
I’m going to try and talk to my boss a bit more about this, but any suggestions from you legal eagles would be helpful. =)
