    In recent years, China's labor laws and regulations have gone through a major overhaul, the most significant of which has been the promulgation of the Labor Contract Law. Under the Labor Contract Law, employee rights are significantly expanded. For example, employers are required to enter into employment contracts, severance pay must be provided to employees under most circumstances, employees can pursue a private right of action against an employer without any involvement of the government, and employees can pursue their labor disputes through mediation, arbitration or litigation. Employees also benefit from the labor law as employers are subject to penalties for failing to sign employment contracts and there are limits imposed upon the use of fixed term contracts.

    As China's labor laws continue to evolve, it is necessary to have a good understanding and knowledge of best employment practices.

    In this program, China Law expert and author of the China Law Deskbook James Zimmerman:

    • Explores Chinese labor contract law
    • Delves into the best employment practices
    • Discusses recruitment, unionization, and hours
