i'm wondering if someone knows the labor code better than me, i've been doing the visa run for years b ut management changed and do not want to pay for it now, only flights, what is the legal situation, right now they tell me i have no work permit so they dont pay me and my contract is 'sleeping'

Yup, my management have stopped paying for flights AS WELL.

The cover the cost of getting the work permit and visa, but I have to cover the full cost of the medical exam and any trips out of the country that the whole rigmarole might entail.

that is rough, what does your contract say? mine is pretty clear that it covers all expenses related to visa for myself and family.
