Course Description

In this course you will develop a deeper understanding of the different types of employment contracts related to individual, collective and parttime employment, as well as the requirements for conclusion of these types of contracts. To translate law and regulations into business practice, examples of provisions which can be included in individual employment contracts drafted in accordance with the PRC Labour Contract Law are provided. Each provision is substantiated by additional information on the purpose of the provision, the meaning and implication of its content, and further information on the background to place the provision in a broader context.

Work placement in China is common. In this course the structuring of work placement arrangements between the hiring company, staffing firm and dispatched employee is discussed in detail, as well as restrictions applicable to work placement, remuneration and return of dispatched workers.

Further focus goes out to the employment handbook.
