How to Manage Out a Difficult Employee

As everyone knows, Chinese employment law is very employee friendly. As a result, employers oftentimes have difficulty in terminating employees whose performance is not satisfactory, who have a bad attitude, or who even commit outright misconduct. This can seriously disrupt company operations or lead to large settlement pay-outs. Companies are therefore left wondering:

How can I manage out employees without the employee successfully suing us for reinstatement or a large pay-out?
Is it really impossible to get rid of unsatisfactory or troublesome employees in China?

In order to help companies navigate these issues, the European Chamber has invited Mr. Jonathan Isaacs, a China employment law expert at Baker & McKenzie, to present at this interactive workshop for senior managers and HR directors.

The workshop will provide:

Guidance on major issues to watch out for when considering a termination. How to best prepare for a case if an employee brings a claim?
What steps HR management can take now to strengthen their company's position in relation to any future terminations?
Negotiation strategies for separations will also be covered.
Real life case scenarios will be discussed, and participants will be encouraged to express their views and ideas on how to handle these difficult termination situations, in order to make this a more interactive workshop.
