I would to ask you guys regarding my employment status in the school that I am teaching as of now. I am teacher in a school since 2008. I signed a contract for 3 years. A year before my contract will end, my employer ask me if I would like to extend my service by sending me into a training. For such training, I will served the school for another 5 years. I signed the contract for another 5 years. As of now, I plan to seek for another employment in public school. I already served 3 out of years as stated in the contract. The employer told me that I would pay a breach of contract (Php 170,000) if I will resign in my job. As stated in the contract, which I DID NOT RECEIVED any copy since I was hired, a payment for breach of contract for 5 years. I was not able to finish the said training because the employer refused to continue my training. I would like ask the following question:

1. Does it lawful to pay 170,000 for breach of contract even if I did not finish my training?

2. Do I need to pay the said amount even if I already served the school 3 out of 5 years?

3. What are legal grounds for the contract will null and void?

I hope that you will give time to reply in my queries.

Thanks and More Power to PINOYLAWYER.ORG

Can you prove that the training was not continued by the employer?

You may need to prove that the contract is void at any point.

Not receiving a copy might not be a reason to invalidate a contract, so you might still be liable.

The training was not continued by the employer. The employer paid only the training fee. I already write a letter of intention to continue my training but they refuse. The training had two parts: the training session and the practicum. I was not able to get any certificate to prove that I finished the said training.
