Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearch

Abstract

From 1949 to the present, the People's Republic of China (China) has
promulgated numerous labor-related statutes, regulations, and decrees to
meet changes engendered by shifting economic and social policies.' This
article attempts to provide a legislative analysis of labor and employment in
China, illustrating the labor-management problems China has experienced
and the corresponding policies and measures designed to resolve them. In
doing so, this article will concretely depict the economic, social, and
political environments in which Chinese laborers have lived and to which
law as an institution has contributed.
