School in SE Jkt asked me to resign several times, I didn't. Letter today on door from school reads, "Get your passport, EPO and ticket at school counter". I haven't taken it down yet to read the contents inside.
I began mediation proceedings through Depnaker Jkt Central, immediately after the school sent a termination letter two weeks ago. They have contrived up a story that I haven't been compliant to their requirements (never given a warning letter). In all fairness, I had been sick for two weeks with pneumonia, but upon return completed all work for the quarter and semester (to their chagrin apparently).
They then began to act sort of nasty and disagreeable with everything, even a few lies thrown in by the supervisor then. They wanted me out, but if I accepted the resignation pushed on me it meant I was liable for an assortment of fines and costs on the duration of the contract. The next day the VP and KS had it out with me in front of twenty teachers in the staff room, complaining about things that didn't need to be complained about. All work finished. Finally, the VP said "Finished", pointed at the door and abruptly left with KS. I sat at my desk for a half hour stunned. Had I actually just been fired? After a few more minutes and not a peep from any of my superiors I packed up and left...
I was visited by Bekasi Imigrasi agents three days ago. I showed them the mediation date that was already set by Depnaker and they asked me to come to the kantor with passport, kittas, etc, anyhow and give my side of the story, the next day.
This was typed up and checked. Twice the info was incorrectly quoted by the officer in Bahasa. I handed over my passport, as told I must do (given a receipt). Then left. Today the school planted a letter on my house door which basically says to come get my passport, EPO and ticket out.
Question one is, can the school do this? Or rather, can Imigrasi do this?
I said at the interrogation that it appears by the hukum/law that I must stay in the country and conclude my court case/mediation first. They didn't seem to agree and said, "We can make you go as we wish, we are able to investigate it ourselves and determine if you must leave".
Question two, Is there some law I can quote which says that I must stay in country when there is a Depnaker (or any govt entity involved) mediation date set?
It apparently would go to the Industrial Court next, if both sides could not find agreeable terms. Mediation date is for early January 2017. The school received their request to come yesterday, from Depnaker, as did I.
I am in disbelief that the school can be so closely related with the imigrasi dept in Bekasi to be able to force my EPO, but I have been teaching here for 15 years and I've witnessed almost all sort of unbelievable things happen though.
Apologies if this has come up before. I have spent several hours trying to find a similar situation that may have occurred and been reported here, but still haven't found anything yet.
Thanks to anyone for any help with this.
