I have a mate that's working in China. He like me, has a knucklehead for a boss. Unfortunately for his boss it looks like he now has breached his contract with my mate. His contract states that he will paid once per month, not on the same day, but during the month after the work was completed. In other words he should be paid sometime in October for work done in September. Being November 6th now he still has not been paid. To me this is a material breach of his contract.
