If you are considering setting up a company in the People’s Republic of China (the PRC) you should be aware that Chinese law is more protective of employees than the laws of many western nations, particularly the United States. The current PRC Labor Law was enacted in 1994; however, a new PRC Labor Contract Law, intended to supplement the Labor Law, is expected to come into force at the end of 2006. This new law contains both bad news and good news from the point of view of the foreign investor; however, in general it further strengthens the protection of employees.

There are literally millions of credit cards in the world today and even with the current credit crunch, the numbers of cards being issued is still on the increase, so the ramifications for the credit card industry are immense and for them at least, difficult to comprehend.
During the good times, credit card companies issued cards under the guidelines of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. However, in their greed to attract even greater numbers of customers each month, they forgot to ensure that their consumer credit agreements they issued to customers were legal and above reproach. This situation changed in April 2008 with the creation of new rules and regulations that fully covered every lending institution that issued a consumer credit agreement.
However (and this is the good part), there are literally millions of potentially flawed agreements in existence that mean you, the consumer, can wipe out your total credit card debt in an instant, legally and ethically/
If your credit is bad and you need to boost your scores quickly your mind may have wondered down the wrong path and made you think what is the quickest way to erase bad credit illegally. While it is possible to illegally remove bad credit it should be avoided!
How Illegal Credit Repair Works
Generally the most common way that people erase negative credit from their reports by breaking the law is to create a new credit profile.This is done by applying for a EIN or TIN number from the United States Federal Government. These numbers are normally reserved for employers or people legally in the USA temporarily.
Sixteen countries of the Commonwealth of Nations continue to recognize Elizabeth II as Queen and Head of State. In this capacity, Elizabeth II is said to have a Royal Prerogative, a set of powers that she holds over the state. Yet the Queen is a constitutional monarch, bound by the fundamental laws of her realms to respect democratic principles. She does not officially prefer one political party to another; moreover, her powers are often not taken seriously. But what are they, precisely, and does she hold them in fact, or is she merely a ceremonial representative of her realms?
The powers of the English monarchy were once indeed extensive, though in time, an increasingly powerful Parliament greatly reduced them, most notably by passing the Bill of Rights of 1689 and the Act of Settlement of 1701. Prerogatives that were never formally abolished include the powers to dissolve Parliament and call an election, to pardon convicted criminals and to refuse royal assent to bills passed by Parliament. These rights form a part of the large body of British constitutional law that to this day remains unwritten, making them more open to question. In the case of royal assent, the formal rule is that no law can come into force without receiving it; however, the last time assent was not given was in 1708, when Queen Anne vetoed the Scottish Militia Bill. Even in that case, she was acting upon the request of her ministers. The current practice is for the Queen to assent to bills as a matter of course, regardless of whether or not she agrees with them. This has led to a view that the prerogative has become extinct by convention. A popular expression of this position came from Walter Bagehot’s 1867 book -The English Constitution-, which claimed that Queen Victoria -…must sign her own death-warrant if the two Houses unanimously send it up to her-. In the days of the Tudors or the Stuarts, such a statement would have been an unpardonable gaffe.
Serious constitutional experts may consider the right of royal assent to be extinct, but there is a major problem with this view. For if the Queen were to decide to veto a bill, what would there be to stop her from doing so? In the current legal framework, the royal assent is an essential prerequisite for a bill to become law, and – this is a key point – the Queen is not liable to any official sanctions should she choose to exercise a veto. Therefore, I hope Bagehot would pardon me if I surmised that, as Queen Victoria said when, as a child, she refused to practice the piano: -There! You see there is no must about it!- There seems to be no reason why the Queen couldn’t exercise the prerogative if she chose to; on the other hand, doing so would probably result in a constitutional crisis and might make the Queen unpopular. It is then conceivable that Parliament would attempt to take away her right of assent (as happened to the Grand Duke of Luxembourg in 2008 after he refused to sanction a law legalizing euthanasia) or even declare a republic. Therefore, the Queen would do well to exercise caution when deciding whether or not to use the prerogative.
