I’m hoping I can get some help on an issue I’m having at my school. I work in a private school in Qatar, I’m having to leave for personal reasons and have just been given my final settlement which includes absolutely no holiday pay. I am leaving just before half term and will not be paid for a single day past the last day that I am working, not even for the half term break. I will have worked over 50% of the school year by this point, but I will not be paid for the proportion of the academic year that I have worked. Does anyone have any advice on what is common practise in this situation and if there is anything I can do to get any holiday pay from the school? To add to the issue I also do not have a contract despite chasing it since before accepting the position. If this was clear in the contract then I never would have accepted the job. I also know that another teacher who left earlier in the year had her pay calculated based on number of days worked out of the academic year, not based on the calendar year. Thanks in advance for any help that you can give.
