ESL Surveys - Problems With Bad Employers

"Bad Bosses."

Hi Readers,

In advance of a future blog entry, I wanted to cast the net out for comments and stories about problems with employers.

It’s a fact that ESL can be a precarious business and there are plenty unscrupulous employers out there. What are your personal experiences?

Please take a moment to answer one or all of these survey questions:

1) Have you ever had an ESL employer refuse to pay you?
2) What do (would) you do if an ESL employer refused to pay you?
3) Have you ever clashed with an ESL employer over conditions or timetables?
4) Do you know how to find out if an ESL school is reputable?

To answer these questions . . .

. . . please click on the appropriate survey link.

1) Have you ever had an ESL employer refuse to pay you?

2) What do (would) you do if an ESL employer refused to pay you?

3) Have you ever clashed with an ESL employer over conditions or timetables?

4) Do you know how to find out if an ESL school is reputable?

Please feel free to leave any remarks to these questions in the comment box below.

Thanks so much for your participation!

Until next time,
