Due to popular demand, we are arranging an additional information sharing session for our members on the soon to be implemented Social Insurance Law. This breakfast seminar will be co-hosted with the Benelux and French Chambers of Commerce and aims to clarify some of the ambiguity which surrounds the upcoming legislation.

China’s new Social Insurance Law came into effect in July 2011, and received much attention because of Article 97 which requires expatriates to participate in the country’s Social Security Scheme. From the 15th October 2011, all foreign nationals and their employers are required to make contributions to the following: basic pension insurance for employees; basic medical insurance for employees; work-related injury insurance; unemployment insurance; and maternity insurance.

During this breakfast, we will be joined by social security experts Dr. Wang Xiaojun and Warren Zhao who will be able to provide clarifications and answer a range of questions about the new legislation, including:

  • What clarifies you as a foreign worker? 
  • Who will be liable for payment of contributions, and how will the payment be handled?
  • How can foreign companies and individuals ensure they comply with the new regulations?
  • What rights do foreigners have and can they claim back any of their social insurance payments when they leave China?
  • What implications will this have on the future for foreigners working in China?
