Good morning to you all. Ok, this is my situation: I'm currently in a school that wants me to decide on signing their contract (this week). Now, I don't want to be derogatory on here but lets just say that the contract is pretty appalling (essentially 10 mths contract IF you don't work summer school, low salary, no flights, poor medical, holidays etc.). Oh, and once you do leave you are not allowed to work summer school and automatically lose 2 months pay! Ultimately, I am actively looking to leave but without success as yet. Therefore, I have the choice of 'suffering' this for another year, at least secure in the knowledge that I do have a job, or, I take a gamble and tell them to politely stick it ^_^ which could ultimately leave me jobless and overseas! Another little 'sweetener' they have inserted into this years contract is, if you sign now and then decide to take up another better offer (regardless of giving them notice) then you have to repay 1 month's salary ( that shouldn't hurt too much !). I understand the moral obligations of contracts but where does one stand regarding signing (reluctantly) and later being offered a 'real' contract at a better school. Is this acceptable if you give them prior notice, or, is it simply a case of putting up and shutting up once signed? Thanks in advance. Peaks.
