I've been working with my employer for nearing 2 years at a public charter school. The school's foundation pays me. Not the school board, as I am a private contractor. The school's foundation from 2014-2015 gave me a contract stating that I would make 42,000 for the 2014-2015 school year, but I did not get half of that salary. After I began working, the school also informed me that I would not be getting paid when the kids have off from school and I wouldn't be paid for holiday breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break, and other professional development days). That was nit stated in the contract. When I brought this up to the director, he said that funding had stopped and that he would guarantee that I would get the monies if I decided to return for the next year. That didn't happen. I signed a new contract for the 2015-2016 school year and I was specific in asking if I would be getting paid on breaks from school and when would I see the balance of my salary from the year before. I got no response. The foundation changed my contract without speaking to me and no one signed it. They reduced my wages
significantly without reduces my hours or reducing my responsibilities and duties. What to do, please? I live in Maryland.
