Many GMs and Line Managers wrongly believe that they can fire any employee easily if they want. They think that even in case the fired employee wins the labor arbitration and court case, the cost is only to pay double the legally required compensation.
Until mid 2015, this was true, because many employees who won the labor arbitration chose NOT to come back to work, but to receive the double compensation. With the economy slowing down, more and more employees who win the case chose to go back to the employer, and continue to work, instead of taking the compensation.
This results not only in further problems in the company (low work moral, conflicts and disputes), but also in much higher costs (salary/wage payment for the complete absence time, usually at least 6 months, and can be up to 2 years if fought through all courts).
Asia-Pacific Management Consulting GmbH (APMC), with their own HR and legal team, has supported a large number of clients in China with regard to HR and legal issues. In this seminar we will summarize the most common mistakes in firing employees, and the best ways to release your staff with either minimum costs or minimum risk.
