A teacher was offered a full-time employment contract with Fulton county, Georgia, to work for a "minimum annual salary of" XXX in exchange for "190 days service", which both parties signed and which was notarized at the time of signing as per normal county protocol. The school principal now says he does not have a full-time position available, and that the teacher will receive a half-time position at half the contractual annual salary. Acceptance of the contract resulted in the teacher being listed with the county as being unavailable for other positions within the county, and prevented the teacher from interviewing with other local counties based on being under a prior contractual obligation. What options/rights/recourse does this teacher have?



You need to check your employment agreement out to see what reasons can be used to modify it. Are there any penalties spelled out? Because you believe that you have lost out on other jobs and income--you would need to prove this in court--you should take the contract to an attorney who handles employment issues to see whether you have provable damages from this change in contract terms.
