Hello, I am currently working in a school teaching English. I know - shocking... Anyways, the company broke the contract - didn't pay my wage as scheduled (late for over 2 weeks), paid incorrect wage last 2 months ( however, I was paid in the end). Also, contract says I should only work 30 hours a week, but they want me to do 40+ hours... In the contract it says that the party which breaks the contract needs to pay 10 000RMB penalty. They're refusing to do this... Also, when I said I want to quit, they said I need to pay the penalty AND give 3 months notice... I have a Z visa. Temp permit is being processed now. The lawyer told me to get the media involved and publicly shame them. I am hesitant to take them to court - costs a lot of time and slim chances of winning (#laowai_life)... so what should I do? any lawyers you guys could reccommend or maybe anyone went through a similar problem? I don't mind going back home... Also, I thought about not showing up to work until they pay me the money :) I am still down 10 000RMB since coming to China - and that's after 3 months of work... I have a feeling I'm doing it wrong. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
