I work as a teacher in one of the private schools in Puerto Plata.
Ongoing financial problems are the reason that teachers are paid late or not paid at all! In result quite few Dominican teachers already left being not paid for several months (finding at the end that the health insurance paid by them monthly was never purchased by school and their savings that school was taking care of are gone too)...of course they left without a penny.
I'm waiting for my paychecks since January.
Right now school owes me 85.000ps.!!! This is my only income.
Tried to talk to the director of the school but all what I was getting were silly excuses, empty promises and bounced checks.Being older and with hart problem it is very difficult for me to deal with all of this.Right now I'm on sick leave until April 12. - fighting high blood pressure and depression.
I strongly believe the school will be closed for good at the end of this year and the director is doing everything to save herself some money.
The worker from Work Office in PP, recommended to find a labor lawyer. It should take less time for him to solve this problems.
What should I do,please HELP !
