Termination of Managerial Personnel: How to Handle it When Things Come to an End

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

Among all the possible events a company operating in China may encounter during its life cycle, parting with its employees must always be considered as one of the most challenging ones. Be it for economic, personal or other reasons, the early termination of a labor contract presents multiple legal and practical obstacles that need to be borne in mind before taking the ultimate decision. And as if that were not enough, things get even more complicated when staff on the management level is concerned.

This seminar has been designed by Eiger to provide participants with a valuable tool kit for different termination scenarios, specifically focusing on the termination of employment of managerial personnel. Receiving first-hand experience from numerous cases in this field, participants will also play an active role in the course of this seminar in order to simulate future actions in similar situations.

Best Regards,

Your SwissCham Team
