Q: Do some schools lay of their foreign teachers ?

One of my friend told me that some schools started to lay off their foreign teachers to cut down expenses in these days? Do you have a similar situation ?

Legal term is 'force majuere', i.e. superior force or 'cas fortuit' (Lat.), beyond the reach of the both parties and every legal contract must have 'force majeure' listed somewhere on the paper.

 

Contract is invalid once 'cas fortut' happened as it is now or at natural disasters.

 

I am not sure how will Chinese employers treat Ncov epidemy, but think most businesses in China are without income at the moment.

It I is possible, but i think it would be a last resort for training schools given that it's probably gonna be really difficult to hire teachers for a quite a while. If that's the case and schools are feeling the bite, I feel it wouldn't be too difficult to find a new job.

Most schools in China got tuition fees in advance and online classes continue. Do they need to return tuition fees if they force majuere? To be honest,I don't think they will return any tuition fees back. It means that most schools don't have any financial difficulties except training schools.

Training centers would definately have some financial difficulties right now. I'm a father and I paid my son's KG in full, but now we are negotiating to pay us back the tuition of February. We are still waiting for the final decision from the Eduacation bureau.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
