    I am also having issues trying to find anything on China as well. To find what public holidays they have, I had to look at the travel websites. As could not find anything.

    If there is a website out there, I too would be interested.

    Hope this heps,

    In China, the law system is very different from the system in Australia. Basically speaking, there are three major frameworks; one is the law system (this is including the Labor Law and labor contract law), the other system is regulations this is from the central or local government, last one is some industrial regulations which also has some impact on our daily HRM practice.

    Because it is a quite complex systems, if you have some specific questions about it, maybe I could help further.

    We have an employee who is Chinese citizen but on our Australian payroll (has an Australian work visa).
    He is going to work part time based in China/part time based in Australia.

    We provide health insurance as a standard benefit but his Australian insurance does not cover him in China so need something local.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for health insurance in China (is it common?). I seem to be only able to find income protection or expat health insurance, so perhaps local private health insurance is not required by local citizens in China as they are covered on local government sponsored schemes?
    Does anyone have any similar scenarios and what cover do you provide?
    We don't want to buy expensive expat insurance if we know as a Chinese citizens he will be covered by local policy should he require medical attention in hospital.

    Many thanks,
