The China Foreign Teachers Union is giving a free copy of China's Labor Laws in English to any foreign teacher planning to work in China as well a sthose already doing so. The holiday gift is designed to better inform teachers of their rights and protections under the law.
In a recent survey by the CFTU it was learned that 78% of the teachers now working in China did not even know China had laws that protected them from abuse and exploitation. Of some 47,000 pages of Chinese labor laws, 38 of these pages provide limited protection to foreign employees working in China, which to most people - is better than none at all.
Copies of these laws can be obtained by sending an email to LaborLaws [at] ChinaForeignTeachersUnion.org Concerning issues of salary negotiations, payments, wages and contracts in China, you are also advised to review some insightful tips at www.ChinaScamBusters.com
