Severance Pay Entitlement in China

Severance pay varies based on the reason for termination and is generally 1 months’ salary for each year of employment capped at 3 times the local average wage in the province where the employer is located, and cannot exceed 12 months.

Besides the statutory severance, additional severance pay can be negotiated between the employer and the employee, and is considered a “negotiable” right.

Severance is payable in all circumstances except where:

  • The employee failed to satisfy the conditions of their probation period; or

  • The employee seriously violated company regulations or committed a civil crime, and the employer can provide clear evidence of this; or

  • The employee resigns

Termination in China

Termination of employees must be for cause. An employer may not dismiss an employee unless it is due to any of the following statutory grounds stated under Labour Contract Law.

It is difficult to terminate an employment contract unless by mutual agreement with grounds stipulated by law to terminate the employee is fulfilled. If termination is made under statutory grounds listed in Article 40 of the Labour Contract Law, payment in lieu of notice is applicable.
