Dezan Shira & Associates Presents on Employment Reallocation for Bencham

Posted by

On April 25, 2018, Dezan Shira & Associates hosted an HR expert seminar together with the Benelux Chamber of Commerce and Bonnard Lawson. Around 20 attendees visited Dezan Shira & Associates’ Shanghai office, listened to two keynote speeches about employee under-performance and employment reallocation, and discussed the practical issues they met in daily HR management.

In the seminar, Dezan Shira & Associates’ Business Advisory Service team manager, Ms. Allan Xu, shared how companies can deal with employment reallocation and termination when restructuring or relocating their business in China.

Allan introduced the common reasons and general strategies for foreign companies to undertake a relocation in China. Allan explained the key risks companies may face in the relocation process from the labor law point of view, and how companies can get through the relocation period smoothly if mass layoffs are needed. “Being well-prepared for the termination in advance, remaining open and transparent in the process, and turning to a professional HR and legal advisory agency for suggestions are all important for business relocation,” Allan says. To finish the speech, Allan presented three interesting case studies to help attendees apply the tips she introduced.
