Dezan Shira & Associates’ Allan Xu, a Business Advisory Manager, will be presenting Navigating Labor Laws in China for U.S. Businesses in a live webinar on January 30th, as part of Birchtree Global’s Incubator Accelerator Program, providing an instructive overview of Chinese labor laws and their implications for businesses looking to invest in Asia.

Navigating Labor Laws in China for U.S. Businesses

Foreign companies face complex labor issues in China every day, from hiring new employees to granting maternity leave, or terminating the staff, and foreign companies will find that policy discrepancies between local laws and laws from their home market can be quite large. With enforcement of laws becoming more stringent, it is integral to a business’ long-term strategy to consider key implications of labor regulations under PRC law. By being diligent and proactively implementing HR policies, a company can save money in the long-run by avoiding labor disputes that are becoming considerably more complex.

On January 30th,  2019, Allan Xu, a Business Advisory Manager of Dezan Shira & Associates, will be addressing the audience as a part of Birchtree Global Incubator Accelerator Program (BGIAP). BGIAP is a comprehensive program, custom designed to give business leaders the information, resources and contacts needed to make informed global market entry decisions. Distinguished Fortune 500 C-Suite leaders, noted legal, tax, and HR firm partners and in-country government economic advisors provide personalized advice and support to participants in this program.

During the presentation, Allan will utilize her six years of experience as a labor arbitrator dealing with over 2,000 labor arbitration cases as well as her legal and consulting background to help businesses navigate China’s increasingly complex labor laws and their implications for businesses interested in operating in China. Allan will address the main hiring methods, piecework, overtime, work injury, work issues during relocation, mass layoff, remuneration system, anti-discrimination and workplace safety in China, duel-employment, and labor dispute settlement in her presentation.
