June 6-8, 2005

In conjunction with the work on the draft law, the National Committee and its partners convened the Labor Contract Law Drafting Workshop. The workshop afforded the opportunity for the Chinese drafters of the Labor Contract Law to gather together to assess the status of the draft law (which by then had undergone many different revisions). They also considered the prior written comments made by two international experts on the draft, and exchanged views with the international experts, Chinese scholars and other participants from other agencies.

In 2002, a consortium that included the National Committee, The Asia Foundation, and Worldwide Strategies, Inc. was awarded a multi-year contract by the U.S. Department of Labor to run a set of programs to improve Chinese labor laws. The overall goals were to help strengthen the Chinese government's capacity to develop laws and regulations to implement internationally recognized standards of workers' rights, to promote greater awareness of labor law among Chinese workers and employers, to strengthen industrial relations, and to improve legal aid services to women and migrant workers. The National Committee's mandate was to work on legislative and labor inspection issues.
