Re: Appointment as Teacher under Contract
My niece while waiting for her result was employed as teacher with a Tuition Centre for 4 months from 1/3/2010.
In the employment letter, it only mentioned the salary per month.
There was no mentioned of the working hours. She worked 52 average per week with no overtime pay. In addition she was requested to work on practical with no pay.
The duties & Responsibilities mentioned teaching & supervising students and any other duties that may assigned from time to time. However these covers cleaning and cooking as well. No lunch or break time given. Termination of Employment - if termination of contract without any reason, a sum of RM2,000/- as compensation must be paid.
Now she sent n resignation letter giving reasons for termination contract but was asked to pay RM2,000/- as compensation by 3/5/2010.
Please advise what can she do. Is there any wrong on her part. What is her rights. We can email the Employment Contract if needed.
