Q:
My current employer has completed the procedures of employment and residence for foreigners, and promised me certain payment and welfare. However, the factual payment or welfare is not as much as the commitment says. In this case, what shall I do to strive for my legitimate rights?

A:
When employment occurs between you and a certain employer, it is recommended that both parties validate each other's rights and responsibilities in written form. In case of legitimate rights infringed, you may apply for an arbitration of labour disputes at Labour Dispute Arbitration Committee, provided that you hold a valid Employment Permit registered under that employer's name. Otherwise, Labour Dispute Arbitration Committee is not able to accept your application for arbitration even your legitimate rights is infringed. That is to say, your legitimate rights will not be protected.

Q:
I've been working in a local company for years, being a holder of a valid Employment Permit. Can I left for another company or have a part time job with this Employment Permit if there is an offer?

A:
No. According to relevant regulations, a foreigner can only work for the employer registered on the Employment Permit. The state of being employed by a second employer is illegitimate unless those employers are invested by a same investor. Therefore, the correct procedure of changing employer shall be as follows: (1) you shall resign from your employer according to the terms mentioned in your labour contract, and get agreed by the employer; (2) the new employer shall apply for the amendment of your Employment Permit and residence permit with relevant documents; (3) then you can start working for the new employer.

Q:
I entered China with an L or F visa, and can I start working within the validity of this visa if there is a company intends to employ me for a short period of time?

A:
No. F visa can only be used for business trip or visiting, while L visa for tourism. So no matter how long you will work in china, the employer has to go through formalities for employment procedures if it intends to employ you.
