Employment contracts

Employment contracts in China are legally binding agreements between an employer and employee that outline the terms and conditions of employment. These contracts are governed by Chinese labor laws, which are designed to protect the rights of both employers and employees.

In China, employment contracts must be in writing and can be signed by both the employer and employee in person or by proxy. The contract should be written in Chinese and a copy should be provided to the employee. It is also important to note that employment contracts in China are not renewable and must be renegotiated or renewed if the employer and employee wish to continue the employment relationship.

Employee Leave
