Hi, I need some advice about an issue of release. So, my owner tells me that they have financial issues and can only keep 1 out of 2 foreign teachers. They asked if I wanted my release at the end of November. They told me this November 9th which gives me less than the 60 days promised in the contract. I told them about this and said they either need to give me the 60 days notice or give me my severance pay. I have 3 months left on my contract and would like to finish it so I can work at a public school.

Do you think I should contact the Labor Board? I don't want to get fired but I also don't want to get ripped off and not have a job in December. I haven't signed anything yet. Thanks in advance.

That sums up working in the South Korean educational system: provide a clean criminal background check from your homeland so you can qualify to work for the crooks and criminals running the schools in South Korea.

To anyone who can help me:

My hagwon boss has always paid late. It takes an average of about 3 weeks after payday to be fully paid. He has been sued through the labor board over 30 times and has NEVER been actually forced to pay money he owes to employees. All he does is pay his current employees in small installments and then at the end of your contract he doesn't pay your severance, flight or final paycheck either. I am very worried about not receiving those final benefits.

Does anyone have any ideas or how I can be helped?? (keep in mind my boss has been through the labor board process many, many times and plays those useless people like a fiddle)


TIA
