I found you at ISR and I am full of joy to see somebody can help me. I hope I am lucky enough that you can read my email for support. My situation is this: I was not paid for August and September of 2009. This was because my visa application was delayed.
I received all the documents then started the visa application. Unfortunately, I have been waiting for 4 months and then got the working visa. There is nothing said in the contract about it, so I am not sure whether I should request the salary for August and September or not when I was not teaching. Meanwhile, my English is not as good as the native English speakers so I do not feel confident to have the debate with our director who always says no to any cost.
Thank you again for your support.
