Q: School didn't pay salary for June, because I refuse to sign new Contract

I was working and receiving monthly salary under F visa. Instead signing a new Contract, I found new School to work for, and sign Contract with them.

 

My School didn't pay my last salary for June 2012. What should I do? I need an advice, please!

Thanks for all your comments!

 

I received my June pay later in a day yesterday.

 

I signed Contract with new School in Dalian last week. They applied for Working permit last week also. We are currently waiting for PSB reply.

 

Problem I had was: I cannot get Z or F visa without School as my employeer. 

How could it be my fault, if School made me work with wrong visa?

 

It can be my fault, just because we are in China. 

 

Thanks!

-Learn English? I mean seriously, if you're teaching English, and you can't write it, who is going to want you to work for them?

-English teachers who aren't educated native speakers are asking to be hurt. No, it isn't fair, but this isn't America. This is China, and you're SOL.

The advice above is a little blunt, but probably fair. You're putting yourself at a real disadvantage working with such relatively weak language skills. It makes recourse more difficult if you're screwed over, which is something you should anticipate in China.

 

With that said, I know a case where a guy, like you, wasn't paid a final month's salary he was completely entitled to. He went in, made a MASSIVE scene and told the school's managers that what they were doing was unconscionable and that he would slander them across town and that he would then take to the internet and write a blow-by-blow account of his grievances against them, with an invitation for anybody considering working for them to contact his email address. It worked; he got most of the money he was entitled to.

I think if we choose to work in China, we have to be prepared for these things. Accept the loss, and move on.

Or if you really need the money, I think you have to go into 'attack' mode and try to damage the schools reputation so that they will fear losing business, then they may pay you.

The bad news: Your visa does not allow you to work in China.  Not being the one who arranged for your visa is not an excuse.

 

The good news: They just passed a law that will heavily punish your employer for having you work for them.  So you can use this as a threat for you paycheck.

 

The bad news: By turning in your employer, you will almost certainly be deported from China.  And if your employer has good connections, or pays off the right people, they will not be punished at all.

 

The good news: You hopefully have learned from this experience and will not allow your next employer to do this to you again.

Do the right thing and report that to the PSB or the they will solve it but if you want  do it the dodgy way then i think you should agree on signing a new contract take the salary of june and say goodbye to them.....but am not recommending that at all....i just said what i think your choices are

You will have to stop working for them with a F visa and find a new contract that can legally provide you a z visa, for which you will have to leave mainland China and the new contract will have to issue you all the legal papers such as an invitation letter, a future contract it requires to come back with a Z visa, the most practical place is to go is Hong Kong that a fly ticket is not that much.

why the blank can't i leave a comment. if you come to a place like china without doing your homework it is your fault. be an adult and take responsibility for yourself. it starts while you are still in your home country. if they tell you to come in on a tourist , when your goal is to work then you should be smart enough to know something is wrong. no country in the world allows people to work on a tourist visa. 

 

learn to accept what you did wrong in the matter.

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
