There are two types of termination procedures in China - termination upon expiration and early termination.
1. Termination upon expiration: employers may choose not to renew the employment contract after expiration. In this case, the employees are entitled to severance payment. In accordance with the Chinese Labor Code, employees can request an open-ended employment contract after the expiration of the second fixed-term contract and employer must accept it. However, it is common practice among the employers in Shanghai to offer a fixed-term contract after the expiration of the second fix term contract as long as the employee agrees.
2. Early termination through mutual agreement, allowing both parties to decide the date of termination and the amount of severance payment that the employee will receive. If the employer and employee could not reach a mutual agreement, then it is a unilateral termination. To terminate the contract unilaterally the employer must clearly prove the cause that is stated in the Labor Code.
Lastly the employer can terminate the contract with an employee by providing a 30 day notice or a payment in lieu of notice if the employee is incompetent and remains incompetent after training or adjustment of his position. In this case, the employee is also entitled to a severance pay.
Employees must provide 30 days notice before terminating their contract.
Severance payments are paid at one-month salary for each year the employee worked with the company.
