I want to leave my job but my director is refusing to accept my resignation.
I am a high school teacher working at an unregistered school which is still getting its registration number. I just found out that most of the teachers are not licensed. I was not awat=re of this when I signed the contract.
I am bound by a continuous contract that I signed in January 2018. The terms of the contract say that I must give 2 months notice. The director says I must give 3 calender months notice but I just gave him one month and notified him of this last week. He refused to accept my resignation saying that I have to provide reasonable dates. The contract was initialised by myself but it was not witnessed. Am I bound to this contract?
He has threatened to take me to court if I leave before time. Do I have any recourse at all? Also what is the maximum amount he can sue me for in court?
I would really appreciate your help,
