My coworkers and I were just recently told that our school is merging with another at the end of June. We were also told that we might be laid-off because of it. None of us had a say in what happened, and we don’t know if what is happening is legal, or not. If I am let go, I will have to find another school to teach at in July. My current contract (as well as my coworkers’) ends in August, but with this merger, we won’t be able to finish. There are lots of questions and nobody seems to give a straight answer to us about anything.
So, I’m making plans to find other schools if I need to. I hope this doesn’t happen to anybody else here in Korea. 😦
