Know Your Rights

Date: 19 August 2015

So I took a job in China, found the hours to be over the top (far more than I agreed to) My two days off a week have NEVER materialized, I routinely get put on a 7 day work schedule... I get told that "We aren't taking advantage" But I have had enough, I am leaving.

My question is this... If I go, (There are threats that the manager of the school will make serious deductions from my salary if I leave early) I simply can't afford that... I have another job outside of the country and am taking it, I just need to make sure I can afford to get there and start over.

Will I get blacklisted? If not how long do I have to wait before I can get back into teaching in China? I know there are better jobs out there, and I have offers, but can't take any of them because I will not get the letter I need from the school that ends my contract.

I am a bit lost, and need some advice, I am kind of not sure what to do.
