Several lawsuits are currently progressing through labor arbitration against 'rent-a-name' gumboots in Shanghai and the infamous six letter sad values school in Tianjin. It appears the outcomes may favor the teachers. I am looking for information about other legal claims against schools that have been either settled or decided by the courts. Outcomes in favor of teachers, and outcomes in favor of the school. The ISR pages are littered with stories of teachers being terminated at whim, and it appears that most victims simply pack their bags and leave ASAP. This simply empowers the owners or SLT to keep doing what they are doing. A comprehensive account of legal outcomes could empower teachers to stand their ground in the future, and create a more equitable work environment for everyone. Despite the conventional wisdom, employees have a lot of rights under Chinese Labor Law. More teachers could stand firm and claim these rights. February 31st and lucky.lady, as you know I am well aware of the information you have already shared. I have tracked down the past posts and some newspaper articles about the spotted OGREs of Tianjin and Shanghai. Please reply here, or PM me.
