Starting a business in the Chinese market may not be as easy as you thought, but hiring employees can be even more challenging for the employers of newly started companies. What kind of contracts you are signing with your employees in China? Is freelancer a good option?  What are the rules and risks around hiring, firing, and managing a team of employees? 

The confusion is also from the other side: As an employee, working for a new business in China can be an exciting opportunity, but it also raises many questions: what is legal or illegal when it comes to salary, social benefits, taxes, compensation, overtime; and if you are a foreigner, how to deal with the new rules of obtaining the work permit? 

Effective HR for companies newly operating in China fall into 5 major areas:
-China Labor Contract Law
-Employee Handbook
-Chinese salary and salary composition
-People management
-HQ and local branch
