Q: Has anyone been paid for January yet?

As we will soon be moving into March, I'm interested to know if people have been paid for January yet?  Understandably it's not possible for payroll departments to get into work to process pay etc. Given the special circumstances and the ease of online money transfers, could and should employers be finding other ways to pay employees at this difficult time? 
Also, what are the legal pay rates for February? Any information and personal experience on this matter would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Where are you working? If it's for a language school they might be feeling the financial pressure. If it's a govt run school / uni or whatever then who knows...

 

Strange times right now, things like contracts and usual office procedures probably aren't much of a guide at the moment.

Some schools started to lay off their foreign teachers. Some schools don’t want to pay full pay check.

It depends. I think it will create a new market because most teachers will not come back to China for a while.

Our HR paid everyone correctly month to month, but that might be something to do with the size of our company, like, more than 30 branches.

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
