Employment & Labor

Wrongful dismissal occurs when an employer terminates an employee's employment for unfair or illicit reasons. In China it is illegal to dismiss a member of staff due to the following:

  • Pregnancy, nursing or maternity leave
  • Receiving prescribed treatment for illness or injury
  • Suffering from occupational diseases or work related injuries
  • Claiming violation of rules but with no evidence to back it up

These are all types of wrongful dismissal. A successful claim by an employee of wrongful dismissal can result in restitution of damages for the loss incurred by the employee.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson
