This session provided an alert on a number of key points which are relevant for employers to note, arising under labour laws of (respectively) mainland PRC and Hong Kong. (NB: The session was aimed at persons who do not regularly work in the area of employment law.) The PRC section, delivered by our two Shanghai-based employment partners, covered items such as: how to create protection from the actions of a recalcitrant employee; difficulties in effecting dismissals; and requirements of local law as to contracts for both Chinese and foreign nationals. The Hong Kong speakers’ topics included: rights of buy-out; case law relating to bonus claims; good practice in dealing with harassment grievances and claims; and, again, use of covenants to protect employers’ interests.
