CFTU Releases 2016 China School Blacklist & White List 4 ESL, TEFL, AP Expat Teachers watch

    • Thread Starter

    If you plan to teach in China don't dare send your resume to anyone until you read this http://chinascamwatch.org and understand that 30% of all China job ads are bait for identity thieves. In China, scams target mostly foreigners and expat English teachers are a favorite. But these Whitelists and Blacklists compiled by the veteran teachers working in China make finding a real and safe job a lot easier and safer.

    Please be informed,

    A school called Spotlight International English in Jinan is a school dealing in illegal paperwork and blackmail. The school has been accused in the past of:

    Not paying their employees
    forcing them to work hours beyond they contract
    forcing them to stay even after they want to resign with-holding their salary and benefits
    inviting foreigners to china under Tourist Visas
    keeping original documents and blackmailing employees by refusing to return them back.
    threatening and blackmail employees with blacklisting and messing up government paperwork as to prevent teachers from transfering to another company or simply a re-entry into the country.

    Alienation, threats and immoral behavior
    Hiring anybody under any paperwork.

    This school is blacklisted and should be avoided at all costs.
