Forum Rules

General Posting Guidelines

Think first before posting, think of the the way you phase your question especially when asking for help. Here are some general guidelines.

 

Please use SEARCH first! Tab top of forum.

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It is easy to search – just click the “Search” tab at the top of the forum page.

 

Be DESCRIPTIVE and Do not use stupid topic names

Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects. They do not get attention and only annoy people).

Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :

I have a question can you help me?

Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

Here is a good example of a way to post a question

How can I explain to my child the reason they need to go to school?

Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as “if you are not going to help do not waste my time replying”.

Some of the biggest gripes we hear from China foreign teachers are about their contracts which they claim are:

a) Vague

b) Unfair

c) One-Sided

d) Confusing

In fact, many contracts in China are deliberately designed to be this way so that in the event of a dispute, the contract can be interpreted in many ways - for the convenience of the employer. Here is a very typical contract teachers are asked to sign that appears to innocent and harmless. Over 80% of new teachers would sign this while China vets would not. Would YOU sign it as is? english.hzedu.net/template/teaching3.aspx?id=33454

Now here in this article you will find one of the worst contracts ever seen in China. open.salon.com/blog/china_business_centr...als_now_millionaires

Clearly the devil is in the details.
What clauses would YOU want to see in your contract? Which would YOU delete and why? Here are 12 contract clauses recommended by the CFTU. www.chinaforeignteachersunion.com/2015/0...clauses-for-all.html

Do you agree or disagree that arbitration is okay and and by agreeing, you'd waive your rights to file a claim in a court? What makes a "good" and "bad" contract for you?
