1 2 Year Contract for Teachers on Thu Mar 03, 2016 9:56 am


Arresto Menor

I have a son now employed as a teacher in Gentle Shephered School, West Fairview Quezon City. SInce we are now relocating to Makati, we asked him to come and move in with us suggesting he transfer as well to another school.

My son says he will not be able to transfer as he signed a 2 year contract with Gentle Shepherd School. Is this legal?

Please advise. Thank you.

Prision Correccional
Its not that he cannot transfer, he may be liable for breach of contract if the school pursue the case against your son. Contract is contract, you must follow what is written on it and not just deny the contract if he dont want it anymore. Look at the consequence and indemnity that your son may face if he breach the contract. If you can handle the consequences then talk to the school in a nice way

Technified Ex's statements have legal merit.

The general rule when it comes to employment contracts is that they are presumed to be valid and its terms and conditions contained therein are the embodiment of the parties' intentions when they signed such document. Hence, such contract is deemed binding to both parties.

Unless there is sufficient proof that willful fraud or misrepresentation has been committed by a party or if the terms and conditions weren't sufficiently negotiated by the other party (a contract of adhesion - meaning, only the employer exercised the power to negotiate and the employee was merely made to sign without understanding the consequences laid therein) or if such a contract is contrary to law and morals, then the presumption of the validity of the contract subsists.

Technified Ex's suggestion on how to deal with the current dilemma is what I would advise you to do as well, hoping that your son's current employer is understanding enough to let him go of such contract.
