The paper "Strengths and Weaknesses of PRC’ s Labour Relations System in China" is a perfect example of a business case study. The labour laws in the Republic of China have gone through several changes in an attempt to create a work environment where job satisfaction, fairness and job opportunities exist. Some of the most recent laws that were enacted in 2008 include the labour contract law, the Employment promotion Law and Arbitration law. The great effort of the state to have the legislation so as to ensure fairness in the labour market is recommendable.

However, there are a lot of issues that need to be considered in regard to the effect of labour relations system for both the Republic of China as well as the global workplace. As the chief advisor of the ILO group, I will identify the loopholes in China’ s labour relations system and recommend some solutions to improve these systems. This report will identify the strengths and weaknesses of the existing labour systems in the People’ s Republic of China as well as give some recommendations on how these weaknesses can be fixed. 2.0 Overview of the People’ s Republic of China labour laws For several years, the People’ s Republic of China was under a planned economy system that favored a socialist-style labour management system.

Employees used to enjoy very high and political status. Since the 1979 People’ s Republic of China began to pull down the planned economy. The labour relations system has been undergoing several changes and in the past few years, the ministries and China’ s National People’ s Congress (NPC) have increased their efforts to put in lines the labour laws and regulations so as to lessen the gap between the People’ s Republic of China’ s labour standards and those of the rest of the world.

The three laws that govern China’ s labour laws are the statutory laws, international laws and administrative laws and most of these laws were adopted over the last two decades. China also entered into World Trade Organization (WTO) which has increased pressure on the country to comply with the International Labour Standards (ILO).
