The China Employment Law Guide addresses various key China labor and employment issues all employers (especially foreign companies doing business in China) and employees (especially expats seeking a job or working in China) need to address or understand. It provides practical and easy-to-understand answers to China labor and employment questions from hiring through firing and nearly all things in between. For example, it addresses the issues China employers constantly confront on matters ranging from what they need to consider in drafting their employment contracts, what should go into a China-centric employer set of rules and regulations and why such a document is essential at all, how to hire, how to fire, overtime, vacation time, pregnancy leave, probation terms, employee benefits, and even lifetime employment. Perhaps most importantly, it confronts head on the many myths Western companies have about China employment laws and discusses how those myths can cause so many problems. This book consists mostly of blog posts and articles my colleagues and I have authored over the years on our award-winning China Law Blog. We do our best to make these articles (and this book) as concise and readable as possible because to provide our readers with accessible legal and practical answers that work in the real world. Unless absolutely necessary, this means we do not go into the weeds in citing and explaining China's employment rules and regulations, but we instead lay out clear paths forward for dealing with real-life employment law issues and problems. China's labor and employment laws are complex and local and constantly evolving, and so in many cases, we write not so much to provide the right answers for your specific situation, but to arm you with the right questions you must ask to get the right answers.
