Merhaba!

 

Here is a little history on this question-

 

For those who do not know I am planning to become an ESL teacher, well I have found a good ESL program but I have read a lot of horror stories of schools unlawfully breaking their contracts and refusing to pay employees or giving below living pay. Some of these schools are in Turkey and usually do it because the teachers are immigrants (most illegal) and give them below standard pay and threaten with Police or deportation if they try to expose the corruption. So the schools take advantage of their workers. Shame on the schools and illegal workers

 

The Question:

 

I will be a legal ESL teacher so deportation is not a concern. What would happen if I came across a school/employer who tries to pull this stunt? Would I have any right to stand up and report to the authorities and get what is lawfully mine?

 

Thanks!

I can give links to the schools which do it, but I think I am better off going to a real university or public school. I assume the schools were private schools, based in Europe so I doubt a Turkish University or public school would do that ( I could be wrong)

THE GRAMMAR POLICE:

If you are a teacher, I have a question.... shouldn´t the title read "are there rights...."?

"nodding head" - for Turkish friends this means "yes"
