On May 16 (at 1 p.m. Eastern, 10 a.m. Pacific and 5:00 pm. Greenwich Mean Time) Grace Yang, our lead China employment lawyer, will be putting on a webinar with HRWebAdvisor. Grace’s talk will last about 90 minutes and will run the gamut on China’s employment laws, with a particular focus on what foreign companies with China employees need to do not to run afoul of the myriad and complicated national and local employment laws. HRWebAdvisor describes Grace’s talk as follows:
China’s employment laws are complicated and highly local. Foreign companies doing business in China face complex China labor and employment issues and questions every day – often without even realizing it. What works in the United States has very little in common with what works in China. Employment compliance has become one of the most important issues foreign companies face in China and it is the rare foreign company that gets it right. Employee disputes are becoming considerably more common and government enforcement is getting significantly more stringent. It virtually always costs less for your company to deal proactively with China employment law issues than to wait to address them only after they have come via a dispute. As such, it is imperative that you understand the framework of Chinese employment law and steps you can take to mitigate risk.
Please join Grace Yang as she helps you better understand the Chinese employment law landscape. She will focus on helping you recognize key China employment issues and give you guidance on how to solve real-life China employment law issues and problems.
