During the seminar, Stephen highlighted HR and labor concerns that plague many companies in China. He described how to draft employee contracts, hire and terminate staff. He also noted the importance of employee handbooks, recording employees’ attendance and annual leave.

The seminar became an informative roundtable, with the various attendees voicing their experiences with labor disputes in China. After the presentation, a Q&A session was followed by a friendly networking event.


Dezan Shira & Associates frequently work with consulates and chambers to provide them with the most up-to-date knowledge relating to regulatory affairs in China.

This experience is reflected in our China Briefing publication, which hosts related reference material such as  “Q&A: Labor Disputes and Labor Law Compliance in China”, “Labor Dispute Management in China”, and “How to Avoid Common Labor Disputes in China”.
