Q: is it legal for the Agency to keep my Work permit? How Can I get it if they refuse to give it to me?

The Agency is keeping my work permit citing " education bureau Needs to check sometimes", " you might lose it" and " we keep all teacher's work permit and everyone gets it back after the contract".

 

Is it illegal for them to do this? Should I report them to the authorities?

 

Please let me know and give me some help.

 

Thanks!

To which authorities do you want to report it? Bureau, which issued your WP?

 

If 'yes', then you should just ask them about legality of withholding your WP.

 

Since, Labour law changes in 2017, I am not too familiar with the matter, butT ...

 

It use to be SAFEA (Foreign Expert Bureau), but that Chinese org. was disbanded or renamed in 2017.

 

l learned a lot about Labour law regulations considering 'contract' and other rules about employment of laowai in China by dialling SAFEA often.

 

I suggest, you find out which Bureau issued your WP and ask them about it.

 

Please, let is know the results of your inquiry. Good luck!

I believe you will find that your FEC says "Issued to bearer" or something similar. The bearer being you who bears it and produces it when required by authorised officers.

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
