How can international law be used as a tool to resolve conflict?

First let me say, I realize that you are trying to use Wikianswers to help you out for requirement 4 of the Citizenship in the World merit badge. On a more relevant note, International law can be used to resolve conflict by not only proving what one country promised another country by examining the legal documents, it can even be helpful to such a simple point as getting the two nations to work out a solution to a problem otherwise solved by war.

Does the new labor law in China apply to foreign workers?

There should be No ambiguity about this law or reason to lead to the above question. The Labor Contract Law (LCL) does NOT make ANY distinctions among Workers, or Classes of Workers as to exceptions / exemptions to this Law (the LCL does make mention early on that Civil Servants are covered under a different law). Nowhere in the LCL are Foreigners excluded. If they are excluded, then what special LAW (Not Regulation, which has No standing of Law) is written for them? The LCL recognizes the rights of ALL LEGAL workers. Therefore if a foreigner has at the time in question has legal papers that would allow him/her to work in China, that person would be covered under the LCL.

There was a case ( I mean a REAL COURT CASE ) of a person who had been in China for 3 years as a teacher for public schools in the city that he lived in. He taught 1 year in a primary school and then 2 years at a middle school in the same city. He was Respected in the community and Highly Recommended. This person through these public schools had ALL the correct documents (resident and work permits, health check... etc). He also had his own negotiated and signed contract with the schools. The public schools in China are a part of the Government, so this person was basically working for the Chinese Government.

The same Government that Passed the LCL and allows its citizens to use it against foreign companies.

Toward the end of his SECOND contract with the middle school the teacher tried to get a new contract with the school. The school refused. Amazingly the teacher was able to get his case heard by the Labor Arbitration Department of the City. The school was angry and believed themselves totally above the law and fought this. The teacher COMPLETED his second year contract and this served as his basic argument. The Argument was LCL article 14 part 3, Completion of 2 consecutive contracts.

This argument was made in Local Court and in District Court, it lost BOTH times. WHY? the Courts ruled both times that the teacher failed to meet the requirements of Article 14 part 2 (WHICH WAS NEVER ARGUED) and said NOTHING about Article 14 part 3. This teacher endured many hardships, threats and police situations. In the end he was in custody and deported with only 1 suitcase. It was interesting to note that his embassy was very aware of this as it happened and sent a witness to the District Court procedures.

Why did this happen? The very corrupt Headmaster (there are various reports of his misdealings in the local paper) of this school decided that he would apply for the money for a foreign teacher BUT he was going to put that money in his pocket and get rid of foreign teacher.

That city was JINHUA CHINA. The school # 8 Middle School. The headmaster Mr. WU QI. The period of arbitration, court and appeals, deportation was APR 2011 - Apr 2012. That person was an American.

Long Answer to your question .......The Labor Law (any Labor Law) does Not apply to foreigners according to court order in JINHUA CHINA. The only question that remains is weather this is to support official corruption by an official, or a group of corrupt officials or it is a victory of the CHINESE system over all the Foreigners.

What is a 50H hearing in Municipal Law?

A 50h hearing occurs when a lawsuit is filed against a municipality. It is similar to a deposition because there are usually attorneys that represent both the Claimant (the suing party) and the Respondent (being sued). The opposing lawyer will ask questions in order to discover the facts of the case. 50h refers to a section of law in either the General Municipal Law or Public Authorities Law.

Why is armed robbery better than bribery and corruption?

"Better" is a debatable term, but I would have to say because the offense of robbery is straight forward... it either occurred or it didn't. Whereas corruption and bribery are much less straight forward and often require cooperation from participants or infiltration of an organization in order to prove.

Additional: It is noteworthy that robbery is a crime against persons, while bribery and corruption are crimes against property. The fact of the matter is that all the offenses mentioned are felonies and will net the perpetrator lengthy prison sentences.

Is it legal or illegal to kill whales?

There has been some debate whether it should be made illegal, as it can result in extinction of the whales. But yes, it is perfectly legal, however harsh you feel it is! They kill whales so they can make medicine. They also kill them so that they can get whale burgers or whale meat! I absoloutly hate the idea of killing any animal!

How does international law differ from domestic law?

International law is different from national law because international law is not enforced. All it is is a system of treaties and conventions that prevent other countries from doing things that are wrong.

For instance, if you make a treaty with Britain to not force the US to join back with them, they can't "legally" do that. If they do, we can tell the countries around them to not do anything with them, and then they will suffer the consequences.

This is different from national law because you get a punishment for violations of any law that your nation provides. You cannot make international laws without treaties and conventions because there is no superior court to deal with them, except the International Court of Justice. The international court of justice is where representatives get together to decide if a country has violated its treaties or other internationally-agreed conventions.
