Event Details

As the economic slowdown takes hold in China, performance management and dismissing the lower performers is becoming more critical for employers. The Chinese employment law regime favours employees and ‎makes it difficult to discipline them or terminate their employment. In this seminar we will provide a brief overview of the law and some tips in increasing the flexibility to manage those employees who do not perform in a satisfactory manner or whose positions will be eliminated.
