How to Avoid Common Labor Disputes in China



  • Title: How to Avoid Common Labor Disputes in China
  • Date: December 7th, 2016


Strong HR management can have a considerable impact on your company’s performance in China’s increasingly competitive marketplace. Common labor disputes are an issue that, while easily avoidable, tends to arise more often than it should. Regardless of the size of your company, conflicts between employer and employee are inevitable.  These disputes can cover a wide range of areas, from working hour disagreements to issues over severance. Because the duty of avoiding disputes falls upon the employer, it is imperative for employers to understand how to properly implement strong HR management from the get-go and minimize risk.

If the proper precautions are taken, a company can eliminate the risk of labor disputes and avoid legal action in the process. 

In this webinar, Stephen O’Regan, Senior Associate, International Business Advisory, discusses how to properly prevent labor disputes in your Chinese operations. Topics include:

  • Implementing contracts
  • Staff handbooks
  • Working hours of employees
  • Attendance and assessment practices
  • Termination
  • Disciplinary measures for breaches
