Dr. Wan Presents at ALB In-House Legal Summit

30 November 2011

Over the past year, the landscape for work stoppages/strikes in China has changed completely. Employees are much more aware of their rights, and do not hesitate to assert them in the event of any violation by their employers. Coupled with strikes elsewhere and widespread labor unrest, the events at Honda’s Guangdong plants last year have had a nation-wide domino effect, resulting in increased minimum wage standards throughout China. Specifically, Dr. Wan addressed the recent rise of collective labor actions and new regulations in Shanghai which vest employees with far greater rights and protection with respect to collective bargaining.
