I am working in International School and I am thinking about breaking the contract. My contract will be finished by July 31st (next month) But the problem is I already renewed a new one with the school since February, 2012 which the new one will start in Aug 1st ,2012
so if i wanna leave the school with pay i must inform the school since end of last month but there's a cause that I can't tell the school that time ...
if I go tell them now .. they will just kick me out without pay (for next month) because now they have summer school and they assigned me to teach in session 1 (June) and I will take vacation in July (session 2 is in July) ...
in the contract said
'if The employee decides to resign, the resignation letter is require to submit at least sixty (60) days prior the effective date of resignation, and if the employee fails to do so, he/she must compensate for the school for the amount of his/her one month salary'
I know it's sound that I am not a good employee but the school cheated me first. Since the first day i went to had an interview with this school .... The owner promised to increase me salary during i m doing master and will increase more when i finish ... i work for this school for 4 years .. when i was doing my master for year 1 (i mean half way of doing master) ...i asked them about increasing salary ..they said let's talk bout this when you finish all the coursework ... 1 year later i asked them again about increasing salary .. they said .. ok let's talk bout this after you get the paper... that's why I start looking for a new job and want to leave the school.
my question is .. does this contract actually effect to me?
