Jul 18: Labour Disputes in China (Shenzhen)

Did you know?

The total number of labour disputes accepted for arbitration in China has grown three-fold over the past 5 years – with over 1.75 million such cases being handled in 2016 alone?

It has been reported that in over 85% of cases involving alleged unlawful termination of employment, the employees have prevailed?

Why is this?

Changes to the law, an increasingly savvy and informed workforce, a cost effective and streamlined labour arbitration process, a high success rate and the recent slowdown in the economy are all reasons underlining the explosion in labour arbitration cases over recent years. 

What can you do?

Being prepared is of vital importance. This begins with an efficient, compliant and effective HR management structure.   A properly implemented HR strategy not only reduces the risk of labour disputes in the first place – but also saves valuable time and resources.
