China Gets New Labor Contract Law

Aab This coming January 1, China will have a new law governing employment contracts. Among the requirements is one that all employees be provided with a written employment contract; failure to do so will turn the relationship into "indefinite" employment which can be terminated only for cause. And failure to specify a term may also lead to creation of "indefinite" employment. And trying to get around the rules by using a series of fixed-term contracts won’t likely work, either.

Samuel Estreicher and Winston Zhao of Cleveland’s Jones Day offer a rundown of the new law here. (Free registration required.)
