I have only been at my new post a few weeks, but I can see that this is a bad situation. My contract indicates a 6 month probation period. Either party can choose to end the contract within this time, without penalty, according to the wording in the contract. If I left during this time, what would the consequences be? Would this be considered doing a runner? I have a feeling that the wisest thing is to stick out the terrible situation. But I'm hoping someone has advice.
