Q: How do you interpret this wording on the Contract?

Shining mentioned 'interpretation on the Contract' on 'tits' thread yesterday and here is my Q:

 

Contract state at 'Transportation Cost' part: 

 

''If party B is under the Contract for a period of one academic year, party A shall provide party B with one-way economy class air ticket when she/he is returning home at the expiration of the term of service.

When the one-academic-year Contract expires, party B will get 50% of international flight ticket allowance or 5000 RMB if the flight allowance is more than 5000 RMB when she/he doesn't return home and still works for party A for another academic year."

 

1. Party B completed the Contract on May 31st, 2017 and Contract wasn't renewed for another year.

2. Party B is returning home (in a month or so), but ticket hasn't been purchased yet!

One way economy ticket cost is approx. 7000 - 10 000 RMB.

3. Party B is seeking 5000 RMB for 'transportation cost'.

4. Party A didn't deposit anything yet for 'transportation cost'! 

 

How much money I am entitled to receive as 'transportation cost': 5000 RMB or half of purchased ticket?

I have some really bad thoughts about some people's level of English on this forum! Some I know aren't NES - and that's fine.. but those who say they are, but are getting this wrong are just...WTF??

 

Paragraph 2 is TOTALLY CONDITIONAL of you signing for a second year. Since you didn't , it's completely irrelevant and should be ignored! Thus, no need to look for 5000RMB, or whether you return or not...

 

Paragraph 1, therefore, is the only one that matters! "If party B is under the Contract for a period of one academic year, party A shall provide party B with one-way economy class air ticket when she/he is returning home at the expiration of the term of service."

 

You get the full price of an economy ticket to return home (one way)... usually meaning as either a reimbursement or they buy it for you (go for option A - or they'll be tightarses, and find the cheapest, nastiest flights they can!!!) Given that no amount was set, nothing stopping you from getting a ticket worth 25000RMB (if it's economy, and flies you home).

Learn English, Learn working in China. Just have them reword to plain English. Basically they're screwing you on the flight reimbursement. My contract clearly states the amount,  that it is given unconditionally and that's it. No BS

I read it as if you did the full time they fly you home up to 5000 or 1/2 the ticket what ever is less
If you didn't go home they will pay up to half of 5000 or half the ticket what ever is less .
In other words they want you to walk

Actually, it reads in the first paragraph they will pay for the full cost of the ticket if you return home after completion of a one-year contract so you should probably have them book it. Usually they have agencies that will get them reduced prices.

 

The second paragraph only applies if you are remaining in China after completion of a one-year contract, in which case you can get cash for half the price of a ticket, (if it is 4600, then you get 2300) up to 5000 rmb, (if it is 12,000, you only get 5000).

 

You said you were returning home but it sounds like you are staying in China.

You got the job and yeah thats what some companies do, but I don't agree with Zethe, you are not a sucker, I followed your job move and you did what had to be done and got the job to keep the legal working permit visa going.

what i read:

First paragraph:

They provide you with a ticket home, with following conditions:

 

Second paragraph:

option1: you stop working for them and want to fly home -> you get 50% of the ticket price, but you have to provide the ticket fapiao

 

option 2: you don't want to fly home and you still will work for them -> you get at most 5000 RMB, if they ticket would cost more than 10000 RMB

 

option 3: you stop working for them and don't want to fly home -> you get nothing

 

And of course just by contract, they could tell you the cheapest flight has 20 stops and takes 3 weeks but it is your choice to not take it and pay the extra costs.

 

they screwed you, but actually you screwed yourself by signing that
