I am very happy to see that many foreign teachers are now becoming aggressive with Thai school compulsive thieving ! Several years ago, I had a conversation with one of my Canadian friends, a Brit and myself. I wanted us to start a Foreign Teachers Association. In which we would retain legal counsel ( on retainer ), have two general meetings per year, and it would be the attorney’s job to act when it’s required. He would also draft up our work contracts. Therefore when one of our members when to a job / interview, and the school liked him or her, they would produce their contract. I loathe the pathetic foreigners who bow before Thai directors such as Thai people do. Look at it this way, if your were at home, and an employer didn’t pay you as per normal, would you not file charges with the Ministry of Labour ? YES you would !
