Gjun

Postby cow sung » 24 Jun 2012, 11:46

I was working many hours at 2 schools, one of which being Gjun. I was initially only working a tue+wed eve, which is enough after working elsewhere just about all day elsewhere. Eventually I was working Mon-Thur evening until 10pm at Gjun, getting more tired as the days went on, eventually got sick and started missing days at my ARC school. I asked Gjun to cut hours, they said they would try to get someone to replace my hours, so I gave them a week and said "look, I can't work these 2 jobs like this, if I carry on, I'm eventually going to lose my ARC job and if that happens, wouldn't be able to work legally at Gjun anymore anyway". The branch manager's response was to say "leave your ARC job and find a new one, we want to help you, we'll call the CLA for you..." this was on Friday morning. On Saturday after my 1 on 1 class, my direct supervisor became very adversarial and refused outright to cut hours, called my ARC school and stirred up some stuff there about my hours with them and began raising her voice. Naturally, I went back after the initial exchange of words to let them know where I stood legally and it's the typical buxiban owner response I've come to expect in Taiwan. Lose your temper first, ask questions later. Blacklist please

If Gjun aren't providing you an ARC, then you aren't working legally there anyway.

NOT TRUE!

You can have 2 work permits ADDITIONAL to your ARC provider (thats 3 total). So he probably is working for them legally.

But you still have to get the additional schools added to your ARC. I assume you have done this OP?

I meant what tomthorne posted. Gjun must be added to the ARC. The way I read the OP that isn't the case.
