I found a new job, got my ARC and my original employer is now asking for a copy of my ARC so they can report the money they gave to me. Even though they paid me prior to me getting my ARC they said they will date my payment for a later date. I spoke with my current school and they said my old school needs to contact them. My original school keeps saying it will be alright but they have a long track record of not telling the truth. I haven't given them my ARC. If I do nothing am I fine? I'm read on here if I get them added to my ARC I can report it.
Any advice appreciated.

My current school has my back 100% and basically told me that it's their problem not ours. I just don't want something to happen like you mentioned, they report some exaggerated amount later. But if they don't have my official records can they even report it? That's why I think they are so eager to have a copy of my ARC, IDK.
I did work for them this year so I guess there thinking that we'll report it as if it happened at a later date. I got my ARC in May so maybe say they paid me in June or any time after my ARC was issued. However they're not on my ARC so I'm guessing I would need to add them and then they report it. Again not sure.
They taxed my money at 18% and I'm guessing just kept the 18%? I was just happy to get something. The school is run by a few incompetent people.

From what I've read on here it seems having two work permits is legal and possible, it's just that I'd be doing it in a backwards order. I'm sure this school cheats on their taxes so I don't know why they just don't get creative with the books.
Also if this actually worked I'm guessing they'd owe me 12% because my ARC is for a year. I get taxed less than right? Maybe a little leverage.

Before I found a job they mentioned that you can work with a tourist visa doing certain jobs. I'm guessing this isn't true based on the reputation of the school. Appreciate the advice though.
