Last year I quit a famous ALT company that starts with the letter I (I won't spell it out because in their terms and conditions you state you will not relay information about their company). They pay you two months in arrears. I was ready to move into another job but they said that if I want my first two months of pay, I need to sign some documents. Among the documents was a form agreeing to terminate my VISA.
I needed the money, and so signed the forms to get the two months of pay, then reluctantly had to return to Britain for fear of getting embroiled in difficulties applying for a new job.
Now, I had a three-year VISA with them that terminates in 2013. I also have multiple re-entry passes. I never handed in my ARC.
Is it possible for me to return to Tokyo and get a job? Or, as soon as they scan my passport re-entry, will some data flash up saying my VISA has been terminated?
I read a lot of stories about people leaving their jobs, and finding new ones, even though you're not really supposed to do it, I heard it's not illegal.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
