getting paid late....

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Have any of you school teachers ever had your pay delayed for some unknown reason?

Welcome to scambodia. They are in a position of power, and believe they can treat you like that. When you leave the job, they will say you broke the contract, so you probably wont get paid any money owing. Some people choose to leave just after they get paid to minimize their losses. But that may be bad for your reputation. Go into the office and complain, and maybe you will get paid sooner. Ask other teachers at the school about their experience.

Have you learnt yet, students from wealthy families have to get good grades, even if they are lazy and learn very little.

Maybe you will find some schools or universities treat you better.

Some of us have heard so many stories like that, we prefer to earn money in our home country, so we dont need to earn money in Cambodia.

Far out explorer, the guys possibly a tad nervous waiting for his pay- I would be too. No need to try and bum him out even more with the old standard- "your fault for being a teacher". And I was actually feeling guilty for accusing you of being condescending a while back.

I'm getting paid too early by my Cambodian employer almost each month.

Example: pay for this month hit my account earlier today. Not due until next Thursday!

I don't work, just asking for a friend. Big school, and not the first time it has happened he says. Usually the pay comes on time but occasionally a few days late...

If the pay does come, it is not a major problem.

For whom?
Yourself or the guy who needs to pay his rent with his wages?

But the school insists that teachers follow all the rules (lesson plans; clocking in and out on time; dress code, etc) and yet it doesn't even follow the rule of paying employees on the promised day. What kind of message does this send to the employees - "do as we say, not as we do"? Anyway, it can't help morale in the least, especially for those employees who are living paycheck to paycheck.... I was just wondering if this is a common occurance at the schools here....
