Hi, If this is the wrong spot for this post, I apologize. Any help is much appreciated. 

Question is simple, is there any way to find out when my WP was applied for by my school, not processed but applied for? Please don't tell me to ask the school, they aren't any help; that's a different story.

You could ask about the application the work permit office that the application was done at.

You could check with the immigration office in your province.

Yeah, I figured as much. Different question for the same issue though; if I have a contract stating I should be paid X amount at a tax rate of x% but the employer is paying less than the contractually agreed upon amount, does anyone know if the labor board would help? 

 

For example, (numbers are not real) let's say I'm getting paid 28,000 baht a month but my contract states I am being paid 38,000 a month and the tax rates differ too, do I have a case here in Thailand? contract is signed by all parties....

Correct it's your local labor office. From what I understand if you have a labor dispute (Not getting paid what your contract states) the labor offices are pro-active in helping even foreigners, it's worth the effort.

It seems to me that your school told you they have applied for a work permit, but don't show you any proof or receipt of that application.

That's why you want it to check yourself?

 

You can go check it at the local labour office.

Be noted that  it is illegal to work without having applied for a WP by your school or you, and without the proper nonB visa.

 

So don't stir any waters at labour.

 

Secondly, they don't pay you what is agreed upon in the contract?


Labour might be able to check that, or intervene.

If you are not working illegally....

 

Lastly, if you seem to have 2 problems already, why the <deleted> would you even consider working there?

It's not gonna get better.

It'll probably get worse after you complain about them stealing 10k of the already low salary.

 

Good luck with it.

It's illegal to work without the permit. Applying does not grant permission to work.  Schools will lie to you and get you to work. Some never apply for a work permit just keep saying still working. 

 

Also you can work on a non-o for marriage doesnt have to be a non-b.  

 

OP  becareful allot of the schools do what they want and dont follow the rules.   As for the wages speak to the labor department they will help.  I've dealt with them a few times, very helpful.

Do not even think about going near Immigration. You will end up in a world of hurt.

Imm' have zero to do with work permits.

I already have my WP. to answer the question why am I here? I would have left if it was a simple moving process. Iv'e been in LOS for 4 years already. Its not as simple as packing my suitcase and getting on a train. If it was i'd do that. They also are trying to tell me I need to give them my WP to hold, meaning I can't have it unless I "check it out".

Your work perrmit yours to keep. ( just don't lose it )

If you leave it with them they can do lots of things with it that can backfire, on you.

Your opening post made it sound like you hadn't got one yet.

Re drop in salary you need to show your contract and payslips to the labour office and ask their advice. Another reason to keep 'your' WP. Give the school a signed copy.

Do it to them before they do it to you.

Check the issue date on your WP. Probably applied for a couple of weeks or up to 4 weeks before that date

A work Permit takes 3-4 working days to process once the application is complete and accepted. If it is your 1st WP with this employer then you would have had to be there in person to sign it and it would have been handed to you the same day.

Originals must be signed in front of the labor office worker. Renewals can be done by messenger.
