Labor Contracts in Shenyang- Three situations in which an open-term contract should be concluded
a) If the employee has been working for the employer for ten (10) consecutive years, an open-term contract should be concluded.
b) Before 2008, it was not mandatory for Chinese employers to conclude labor contracts. Upon mandated implementation of labor contracts, the employer is essentially introducing the labor contract system to the employee for the first time. In the case of state-owned enterprises, a re-concluding of labor contracts as restructuring is practiced. Under these circumstances, if the employee has been working for the employer for ten (10) consecutive years and is less than 10 years away from his legal retirement age, an open-term contract should be concluded.
c) For start-up companies, it is crucial to keep in mind that an open-term contract must be concluded after the second renewal of a fixed-term contract. For example, when Employee A signs a 1-year contract on August 1st, 2013, after the first 1-year renewal on August 1st, 2014, the next renewal on August 1st, 2015 should be an open-term contract.
