If "breaking the contract" is not stipulated in the contract signed between you and your employer, see the provincial standard about "giving notice". Normally it is a two week notice.

Thinking about quitting?

You will improve your chances of getting another job if you have worked in one job for a considerable period of time. Before quitting your job (unless there are problems of abuse) you should try to solve your work problems by talking about them with your employer. It is reasonable for you and your employer to revise your contract periodically to be sure that it is suitable to both of you. Talk with your employer before taking any action to quit your job. If you decide to quit, give your employer enough notice so that arrangements can be made for your replacement. Check your contract to find out how much notice you have agreed to give your employer. However, you are encouraged to leave a physically abusive situation right away.

Sorry. I logged in to my personal mail box so I could search for the particular mail sent to another member who was threatened by employer with deportation should she leave her employ. I'll send you a personal message written in Filipino. You are Filipino aren't you?

It is advisable to give notice before you quit a job, if only because you might need their references later but if you break a contract, nothing can really be done to you.  Are there any stipulations in the contract to what happens if you break it?

I knew some guys who had a 2 year contract with the employer and broke it and quit, some completely without notice.  The company tried to bill them for their costs of hiring them, actually that was in their contract that they would be billed for that if they broke it but after they talked to the Alberta employment standards, they found out that it was against the law to make them pay these costs and so they told the company that and refused to pay.  The company could not do anything to them.

For more help with this, check http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/work/caregiver-faq02.asp and http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/faq/work/caregiver-faq03.asp

Did you look at the links above where there are links to nanny support agencies and the like?  Ask them and call the employment standards in your province and ask them.  You can even make an appointment with them and bring your contract and they can tell you if there is anything in your contract that prevents you from leaving.  Well, basically nothing will prevent you from leaving but the question is if they can impose some sort of penalty on you if you do.

What will you do if you leave this family?  Do you have a place to stay?  Another job lined up?  If you find another job, you can still not start working until you have an LMO for the new job and your work permit changed to the new employer.

You can also talk to your employer directly and tell them that you can not take their abuse any longer and if things do not get better, you will pack up and go without notice.  They may actually try to treat you better if they realize they will otherwise be without a nanny for the next 4 months.

Basically, read what is stipulated in your contract and if there are no penalty clauses indicated when breaking the contract, then you can say goodbye to this situation.
