Lingering Wrangle Over China’s Labor Law

From Caijing Magazine:

Implementation of China’s new labor law in January was supposed to close the book on years of debate between trade union and employer groups over workplace rights.

Instead, the controversy has continued in the run-up to the release of the detailed rules for the Labor Contract Law, which a State Council legal arm is expected to publish soon.

The controversy has been around since the draft law was released for public comment in March 2006 by the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. Within a month, the draft generated more than 190,000 recommendations through the Internet, media and mail.

Rarely does a draft law trigger such widespread reaction in China. But the wrangling isn’t over.
