  • Working with the Employment Contract Law Recorded: Jun 25 2009 61 mins
    Confirmed speakers include Joseph Deng, special counsel with Baker & McKenzie; Shawn Zhao, senior corporate counsel, China, with Google; and CLP editor Phil Taylor.

    The PRC Employment Contract Law is on the minds of counsel advising companies with operations in China.

    The Law has strengthened the rights of employees, giving them the opportunity to take their disputes to low-cost employment tribunals. Workers are more aware of their rights and unions have increased their presence in foreign-invested companies. Companies are desperate to cut costs, but must stay legal.

    During the 60-minute web-seminar, panellists will discuss:
    - the impact of the Law and the implementing regulations and recent Shanghai High Court interpretation;
    - the rules covering individual terminations and mass lay-offs;
    labour unions, works councils and collective contracts;
    - increased labour disputes and arbitrations; and
    - cost-cutting measures for companies struggling to stay afloat.
  • China merger-control enforcement Recorded: Apr 29 2009 60 mins

    - the protection of legitimate expectations from businesses;
    - the impact of China's merger-control rules on transaction planning; and
    - China's rules on foreign-to-foreign mergers, as well as extra-jurisdictional enforcement.

    Speakers include: Marc Waha, partner of Norton Rose in Hong Kong; Simon Sorockyj, senior associate of Pinsent Masons in Hong Kong; Dr Zhan Hao, managing partner of Grandall Legal Group in Beijing.
