I'm a first year EPIK teacher, I arrived in Korea about a month ago. The finance man from my school just gave me my payslip and it didn't have my entrance allowance on it. I pointed out this in the contract and he still didn't seem to think he needed to pay me my entrance allowance of 1,300,000. He said that I get that when I leave Korea. But that is the exit allowance which is a separate 1,300,000, right? It was very hard to communicate and no-one at my school speaks very good English. It h been left up in the air. Do the POE pay the entrance allowance? I was under the impression that the school paid that?
Also, I am told that although EPIK pay day is 25th, and in the contract it says that if it falls on a Sunday it will get paid the preceding business day (Friday), that I won't be paid until Monday or maybe Tuesday.
Any advice fellow waygookers?
