Teachers should honor their contracts if their employers do the same. But if you get exploited or cheated it's good to to know about your legal rights http://eslwatch.info/china/77-about-the ... r-pay.html

Avoid getting trapped in a bad contract in the first place! I usually refer this link to all the newbie China TEFL/ESL teachers I meet. http://eslwatch.info/china.html

Conversely, there are good recruiters out there, I know, I've been with the same one for nearly four years.
I think the problems mainly stem from private schools, the private money making machines. In my opinion you can't beat a State school with a reputation to keep and who won't suddenly change their name and email address if it gets 'too hot'!

I'm not allowed to put who I work for on the board, but if you want a safe and secure job in Northern China at a Middle/High school, PM or email me for details and read a self-prepared and unbiased description (without mention of the company), on:

I think it would make more sense to be more careful on the front-end when choosing a job in China. By making a smart choice you can avoid all the above grief! Just my opinion. Here is how I do it

There is also a China Liars List at Scam.com that features a few dozen bad apple schools to avoid: http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?7044 ... -BLACKLIST
