Expat Seminars on New China Mandatory Welfare Obligations

Posted by Reading Time: 2 minutes

Jun. 20 – China has recently announced it expects expatriate employees and their employers to commence mandatory contributions to pension, medical insurance, unemployment, occupational injury insurance, and maternity benefits possibly as early as next month. Such regulations, if introduced, are likely to add significant financial expenses for both expatriate employees and their employers in China. Dezan Shira & Associates will be hosting two events, one in Shanghai and one in Beijing, to examine the proposed contributions.

Included will be:

  • An overview of the latest proposals and what they imply;
  • An analysis of the current regulations concerning mandatory welfare payments;
  • An analysis of the potential costs of contributions for employers and expatriate staff;
  • Profiling of those expatriates likely to be affected;
  • An examination on claiming benefits such as pensions, medical insurance, unemployment and maternity in China;
  • An examination of the regulatory issues still to be resolved concerning implementation;
  • Issues over reimbursement from China’s pension fund upon leaving China;
  • Opinions on time-frame for commencement.
