I have received a contract with various conditions in it that are illegal/void. They, among others, circumvent employee protection laws, withhold pay and require me to be scanned by those airport full body scanners without offering me an alternative. Note that my question is not about whether these things are illegal.
This employer is known to be abusive. They have only horrible reviews on glassdoor and I personally know a few people who worked there. It's not a place you want to work if you have a choice. Unfortunately, I am desperate for a job, so I am planning to sign the contract and keep searching for a new job.
While I hate the body scanners and abusive culture, I am not too bothered about those. Those are dealt with by planning to leave asap. My main goal is to not get scammed out of the pay I have a right to. How can I protect myself from (financial) damage and get the pay that I deserve?
This is not a start-up. This is a large international company based in Netherlands. They do not have financial problems, in fact they are doing extremely well. I am willing to sue if needed, but I want to keep my job during my search for a new one.
