Q: Employer Breaking The Law

My employer in Xilinhot/Xiwuqi Inner Mongolia, China has been breaking a long list of Chinese work/HR laws. He's getting foreigners to come work here (at Aston/Intelligent English), but once the foreigner arrives, he tells them he cannot do their visas. He promises managers positions, bonuses, etc. but always finds reasons to never give. At least 4 of my co-workers have worked 7 days a week for quite some time. If anyone tries to leave, he won't give them documents, threatens them, etc. Only two employees at his two schools have proper work visas, but he won't let them go. He says he won't give them any documents so if they leave his school, they will have to leave China forever. Is there no law in Inner Mongolia that cares? There seem to be no authorities here willing to help.

Enter 'SAFEA' in search above for SAFEA's (Foreign Expert Bureau) address and phone no. and dial them up. Don't send them an email because nobody is monitoring and replying to.

SAFEA is gov. agency which approved your Working permit, if you have one.

They will sort out your employer in a heartbeat.

Good luck!

They should call the Aston main office in Dalian and threaten to blow the whistle at the corporate office PSB location. I actually know the guy from Britain that went to set up that school 8 years ago. Mark, promised him ownership and profit sharing in the school, probably a lie since he worked as a recruiter after that from the UK, have no idea what he doing now, fanatic bicyclists, used to be the foreign manager for Aston number 2 school in Jinan.

Just leave. As long as you have your passport and im assuming you have something other than a work visa. Just leave. Nothing he can do.

It's not worth getting mixed up in that shit. Even if you get justice, you still lose.

I do have a work visa, residence permit, and work permit. But every agency, lawyer, and our new job says even if we get a new visa, we can't get a new work permit without this one being cancelled. Apparently in Xilinhot, they can get away with murder. Everyone told us to play dirty. It's the only way to get a result.

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
