Topics under the employment legislative update include maternity leave, updates to anti-discrimination legislation, statutory holidays, MPF setoff and immigration updates.

The team also shared some case studies and discussed the legal implications of stranded employees, one of the most common issues employers faced during this pandemic year.

China

Our China team shared updates on China’s new civil code, new evidence rules, Supreme People’s Court’s guiding opinion on trade secret cases and local developments.
