SOME EMPLOYMENT LAWS ISSUES IN CHINA CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
Most of countries have enacted their own labour laws and regulations which are according to their national characteristics. The scope of labour law application is expanding and the labour law has been a complete and systematic legal system. To protect workers’ basic rights, the national labour law generally provides the minimum standards of working conditions. Limited by our group members’ knowledge and information, we mainly research the Chinese labour law in construction industry (Stephen, 2009). The Labour Law of the People’s Republic of China was enacted on 5/7/1994. The law involved 13 chapters, 107 items. The content includes general principles, employment promotion, labour contract and collective contract, work time and rest time, wage, labour safety and health, special protection to women and children workers, professional training, social insurance and welfare, labour dispute, supervision and inspection, legal liability, supplementary articles. The labour law is the fundamental law of
; it laid the foundation for the labour legislation. According to Stephen (2009), the guiding ideology of the labour law is: China
1) To reflect the constitutional principles and protect labour’s rights;
2) To improve the development of productivity;
3) To provide an uniform basic criterion and standard;
4) Insist on the national conditions and act on international practice as far as possible.
