PRC Employment Law Newsflash (Vol 14 No.4)

Date: Apr 2013
Various provinces and cities across China have increased their minimum wage standards ("MWS") for 2013. When reviewing MWS, it is important to note that, if the announcement and the effective dates differ, the effective date always prevails. This means that, where the announcement date of a given MWS is later than its effective date, employers must make back-payments of the difference to their employees accordingly. Otherwise, the employers would risk incurring legal liabilities for failing to pay their employees on time or in full.
