employment arbitration
« on: October 10, 2014, 07:23:52 AM »

Some months ago, there was a discussion about the merits of using legal means (e.g., Labor Arbitration Committee) to resolve disputes with your employer. Some were of the opinion that it's futile. This week I came across some stats that may shine some light on the matter.

The source in Chinese is here http://tjj.hefei.gov.cn/n7216006/n9376603/n9377097/n9377118/n31164244/35006601.html

I'm interested in a break down of nationality of those who bring labor disputes. I don't think it's futile, I just think that foreigners are at a disadvantage.

Thanks for the info though! I'm a bit surprised how overwhelmingly in favor of the employee the outcomes have been.

A previous Hefei expat took a school to court.
He won but the compensation was insignificant.

Because it was an International company, he took it to an American court.
He Won, the compensation was not altered.  The judge ruled to leave it as the Chinese courts stipulated.

Fact.

Ask the Lawyer thread answers this topic.
