The current pandemic is putting a great weight on enterprises in China. Be it due to current difficulties or foreseeing economic challenges ahead, companies across the country are reducing their workforce to save on labor costs. However, dismissal in China is restricted and mistakes can be costly.

British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai invites you to join this panel discussion related to organisations and individuals, in which three experts will talk about their previous experiences and professional advices for organisation and personal perspectives.  

In this seminar, Ms. Qu, Vice-President & Senior Partner at River Delta Law Firm, will introduce individual and collective termination in China. Through summary of the law and case analysis, Ms. Qu will explain the legal foundation and best practices to handle termination.
