What’s in store for 2018? With the passing of one of the largest tax reforms within the past 30 years, anti-dumping orders, ICE workplace raids, and many more new regulations, creates much panic amongst Chinese business owners.

This can benefit employers in dealing with and avoiding unnecessary issues, fines and lawsuits.

Kenny Chang, President of KCAL, also mentioned that in recent years, many employees are more and more aware of their legal rights –some are even more aware than their employers.

This includes the new minimum wage regulations, transgender and pregnant employee rights, and litigation prevention.
