It's payday - but foreign newstarts will get paid "tomorrow"

Recommended Posts

Does anyone knows the law about punctual payment and equal treatment of all staff?

Every month, it's the same issue... Does anyone else have such problems?

And your point is? Being payed the day after some people or you feel that you are being discriminated against.

No, some schools have different pay days for various reasons.   I know one larger school that use to pay foreign teachers one day before Thai Teachers.   When they went to direct deposit for those who wanted it and had an account at the right bank, the deposit was made the day after pay day.  

 

I am not sure why they would make a distinction between new teachers and existing staff, but I would expect that it may involve some sort of administrative processes that make it a little different.

 

I wouldn't worry unless tomorrow it doesn't happen.

As I've mentioned before, contract teachers (both Thai and foreign) and Thai government teachers are employed, funded and paid through different routes.

 

If you were paid on the same day, and some may be, it would simply be coincidence.

 

Don't get paranoid about it!

I should have thought the regularity and the amount of your pay might rate higher in your order of priorities?

Looks like no one want to see the problem what some people have because they must pay their own bills on the first and not on the 2. or 3. day of the month. If you not get your salary on the the 1. you will have a problem. ?

Well, it seems to take longer. The new goal is this week. Am not amused!

If it's any consolation, I know of Thai contract teachers in government schools (ie not the permanent Thai teachers) who haven't been paid for months.

 

I'm not saying this justifies late payment to foreigners, but it puts it into perspective. Too often we foreigners just see one piece of the jigsaw, and invent all sorts of conspiracy theories to fill in the gaps.

Could be foreigners pay process has additional requirements 

and reason for one day delay

 

or Foreigners pay rate is higher and needs additional approval 

 

easiest way to find out ask your employer

For anybody to be living like that( hand to mouth) must be hell.

Surely nobody (farang) living here is that desperate.

I am sure a lot of people living here has this problem. They not get pension and MUST work. Their savings what they had years ago before they come to Thailand are gone and now ..... they need money to live here longer.

 

What do you think how much the most farang teachers earn? I am sure a lot of them earn not enough for their visa requirements.
