American loses fight over job

A COURT has rejected an American's claim for compensation after he lost his job. Jing'an District People's Court ruled that because he didn't have a work permit or a work certificate, his rights as a foreign employee weren't protected under the Labor Law.

Warren Tu was hired as general manager of the restaurant at the Old House Inn in January 2008, but while he was home visiting his family, his employer asked for his resignation.

Tu told the court he sent an e-mail on July 17 agreeing to resign. But when he returned to Shanghai in September, the inn only gave him his pay for June.

He sued for compensation but the court said that without the relevant documents he had no entitlement to unemployment compensation. However, the inn was ordered to pay his salary up to the date of resignation.
