China: Ministry Issues Labor Dispute Mediation Regulations

The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security issued the Regulations on Consultation and Mediation of Labor Disputes in Enterprises ("Labor Dispute Mediation Regulations") on November 30, 2011, which will take effect on January 1, 2012. Under the Labor Dispute Mediation Regulations, large and medium-scale enterprises "shall" (yingdang) establish a labor dispute mediation committee. This represents an attempt by the government to encourage companies to resolve labor disputes internally, rather than have such disputes decided in arbitration or court, or being pushed onto the streets.

Under the Labor Dispute Mediation Regulations, the number of members on the mediation committee would be determined through consultations between company and employee representatives, with each side appointing an equal number of mediation committee members. Employee members would be composed of company union committee members (assuming the company has a union) or representatives elected by the employees at large, and the chairman of the mediation committee would need to be a union committee member or an individual agreed to by both parties.

However, the Labor Dispute Mediation Regulations do not provide for any specific penalty for an enterprise's failure to establish a labor dispute mediation committee. The only consequence for such failure provided by the Labor Dispute Mediation Regulations is that if an enterprise does not establish a labor dispute mediation committee and if such enterprise faces frequent labor disputes or collective actions, which undermine harmonious labor relations at the enterprise and impact the stability of society, then the labor authority at the county level or above may publically criticize the enterprise. Therefore, it remains to be sign how vigorously this apparent requirement for large and medium-scale enterprises to establish labor dispute mediation committees will be enforced and what, if any, impact these regulations will actually have.
