Dr Isabelle Wan Conducts Seminar on the Employment Contract Law

11 March 2010
Singapore: The new Employment Contract Law (ECL), came into effect on 1st January 2008 and is considered the most significant change in Chinese labour rules in more than a decade. The ECL set new standards for labour contracts, severance pay and employment of temporary workers. Although detailed implementing regulations to the law have been promulgated, many employers remain unclear on the changes and how they will affect their operations in China.

The half-day seminar conducted by Dr. Wan, focused on the major reforms affecting employers rights and obligations under the newly promulgated Implementing Regulations for the ECL, as well as notable case studies pursuant to the Shanghai High Courts Guiding Opinions on the applicability of the ECL.
