Writ of Release?  

Hi,

So, I hope it’s okay if I ask this here.

 I’m an English teacher at a hagwan in Korea. I’m very unhappy in my job for really solid reasons. I want to quit but I heard I wouldn’t get a Writ Of Release if I did, which I’m told means I couldn’t get a job somewhere else.  Is this true? I also heard that if I was fired, they would have to give me this Writ Of Release. Is any of this true? I really want away from this school but I would like to stay Korea, so any information would be really great. 

Thanks.

Did you have an agency that helped you get the job? If so, have you talked to them? Maybe they could help you with your problems or even transfer you to another hagwon.

are the solid reasons something that could get you out of your contract? i've never heard of a writ of release being needed to either get out of a job or get a job. but if it's something that's written into your contract that might be something different.

From what I understand (and I could be mistaken) your employer is obligated to give you a Writ of Release if you decide to quit. They can't very well force you to stay. While I was working in Korea a friend's boss threatened to deny her one, but my friend was later told that her boss couldn't do that.
