Contract Question- not sure what this means? Please help :-)

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by Meira, Aug 27, 2011.

  1. I know I should of made sure I understood all the terms before I signed last year but does anyone have any idea what this means?
    In addition the Teacher will be paid a Gratuity of 12.5% (of which 3% is deducted for the ********) is paid, subject to satisfactory performance of duties, at the end of each complete School Year.
    Does this mean that I will get 12.5%- with 3% taken away from it so really 9.5% or that I will get 12.5% - 3% of the total leaving me with 97%?
    Thank you,

    Did your contract really contain this rather incoherent stuff?
    I can only assume this is an independent school, consult them or a lawyer?

    I assumed this was for an overseas position.

    You'll have to do the maths when you get the bonus, working out if you get 9.5% of your salary or 97% of 12.5% of your salary.
