Q: Letter of release is this legal

My contract says if I give notice I need to pay the cost of the visa which is fine but it also says if I quit for any reason I will not receive a letter of release. I saw this prior to signing but there was one condition  I came for and they just interpreted it to benefit them which was the working hours.  They are telling me that hours are done by 60 minutes and not a class period....which would leave me open to teaching 28 classes a week. I turned this offer down previously and the owner said yes normally a class period is an hour but they can't pay me same salary for less hours..

They are legally obligated to give you a letter of release, IF YOU ARE WORKING LEGALLY.
If they give you any BS about it, contact your local SAFEA branch.

I downvoted you but it's nothing personal, I just don't like anonymous posters.

Not too long ago, I was in an Bash and Trash Expat chat room for about half an hour where I was repeatedly insulted, told that I was stupid, that I couldn't think properly, mocked, cussed at, etc. It was the usual fare from the Bash and Trash Expats.  I remained calm and eventually asked the question, "Why do you Bash and Trash Expats hate The CFTU?"  I knew the question would get an interesting response. It did.  Foul language, insults, lies, misrepresentations, hatred, condemnation, and more.  But woven throughout the numerous insults was the most common answer: "We don't hate what does not exist!"

 

I replied by asking how they knew that The CFTU did not exist.  I told them that if they could not give me some rational reason for denying his existence, then their position is held by faith.  In that case, why would they condemn me for my faith in The CFTU?

Whatever happened to eliminating the anonymous posting? The trolling has only gotten worse recently...

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
