Exit Allowance 2018
« on: July 11, 2018, 09:00:03 AM »
Hi!

My school told me when I asked why I wasn't getting an exit allowance that if I get a renewal bonus then I can't get an exit allowance.  Is this a new thing?  I am GEPIK.  Please let me know, thanks!

You only get your exit allowance when you leave.

Since you're renewing you don't get it yet.

I am not renewing.  I am leaving in August (6mo contract) but in February I got a renewal because I renewed for 6 more months.

Then you will get it I believe. Otherwise only those who stayed only a year would receive it and that isn't right.

Maybe they are confused by the wording of the contract.

I could be wrong of course.

They give 6 month contracts now?  I would think you would have to be there for a one year contract to get the exit allowance if you are leaving 1.3 million or 2.0 million if you are staying for another year.  Six months, maybe you get nothing?

You can renew in some provinces once for 6 months. Once that 6 months is up you have to end your contract.

I'd have thought you still get the exit allowance though since you only get partial renewal bonus?

If you don't that's so messed up.

GEPIK contracts are known to have some different clauses than some of the other P/MOEs so it's best to take a look at what yours says. It also might be a good idea to check in with the GEPIK coordinator. Schools often only know what happened in the recent past and each teacher's situation could be different.

I don't know specifically what happens in your situations, but I can say with a reasonably amount of certainty that it will be in your contract. Is your contract translated into English? If it is I would say read it again carefully.
