@mcfcok1989! They have abandoned the position if the IS says they have. If the IT cant get into the country than the IT cant get into the country to file a lawsuit. How does the IT convert their issue into coin, whats their remedy? They dont have to previously be told, they can be given directives a...

@mcfcok1989! You dont have to tell them, just stop paying them, they will stop working on their own. Dear IT, we understand your concerns. At this time we have students expecting their teacher in their classroom on X. If you can not arrive by Y we will consider your appointment abandoned and hire a ...

@mcfcok1989! So it would apply than to exceptional or extraordinary ITs, no? They will open, they will just lower their recruiting requirements to staff their classrooms. ISs wont declare insolvency, shutter their doors and send everyone away including the coin because some IT or group of ITs isnt a...

Thats not entirely accurate based on the US DOS. China is still permitting "Foreign nationals coming to China for necessary economic, trade, scientific or technological activities or out of emergency humanitarian needs". Its not going to effect much. ITs that were willing to travel back to China aft...

So nothing. "As long as this is done as far as possible with the support and agreement of the school", is exactly what it has always been. If the IT and the IS agree to dissolve the contract as long as someone (the IS is paying the invoice) there has not been a penalty. Thats not the issue of concer...

If you could clarify: 1) Do you want to renew your contract with your current IS? 2) Do you want to continue with the current contract but only if you can telecommute and teach online from your US location? 3) Do you just want to cease working for the IS? 4) If you just want to cease working for the...

Its not really SAs call, its each individual associate. When an IT withdraws acceptance of the contract the IS doesnt pay the invoice for the placement to the associate, thats coin that disappears. What your asking your associate to do is: 1) Dont get paid 2) Repp you again 3) Deal with a frustrated...

ITs may also invoke for Force Majeure. China has issued thousands of Force Majeure certificates.

@buffalofan is in error. The IT as an employee is a . to a contract/agreement just as the ISs representative is a . to a contract/agreement. The designation of "employee" does not make the IT a lessor or inferior .. Force Majeure allows a . to vacate or nullify a contract either in full or in part w...

When an IS claims Force Majeure it allows the IS to void and nullify the contract without further obligation, this usually means anywhere from 0-30 days of salary and thats it. Better ISs will give 30 or more days of salary and a flight to your HOR if possible. It would generally cease any other all...

@DomeVet Is the €50K net or gross salary? Is the €50K for a 9, 10, or 12 month contract? Are there any other benefits of the OSH package or is it essentially an LH package? Regulated (public/maintained) DTs are civil servants, and they earn better coin than private/independent DTs. You would need to...

As opposed to what, your belief that the opinion of a non-authoritative source carries more weight than mine.

@Bibury4 Aside from you or someone associated (such as SA) telling them, ISs find out about such contract scenarios: 1) A site much like this one such as AISH or HeadNet. What happens is someone posts a message that if any other member is considering or has hired X IT to contact the leader. There me...
