As of July 1, 2013, companies will no longer be allowed to hire staff through staffing agencies (such as FESCO, CIIC, China Start, etc.) except in very narrow circumstances. Up to 60 million agency workers are being used in China in all industries, either for headcount reasons, to reduce labor costs or to avoid rigid labor and employment rules. Thus, the new rules may have significant impact on employers and employee alike, if they are strongly enforced.

AmCham is pleased to invite you to join a seminar led by Andreas Lauffs , Head of the China Employment Law Group and Jonathan Isaacs , Special Counsel of same group, to share their insights on the important changes made under the new rules.

What you will learn:

․ Will companies need to change their employment structures?
․ Consequences of non-compliance
․ Advantages of labor dispatch arrangements
․ Outsourcing vs. labor dispatch
․ Procedures and costs related to any transfer of employees to direct employment
․ 'Equal pay" requirements for legal agency workers
