APFL Delivers Labour Law Seminar

Labour law is one of the most important areas of legislation foreign-invested and domestic enterprises alike need to understand to keep themselves and their companies compliant in Vietnam.

The new Labour Code 2019 entered into force on 1 January 2021 and includes several important changes compared to the previous legislation. Meanwhile, constant changes in labour regulations – introduced through implementing decrees and circulars – mean that enterprises need to continue refreshing their knowledge of this important legislation.

For this reason, earlier this month, APFL & Partners held a seminar on the labour law for one of our clients. Partner Antoine Logeay, Of Counsel Tran Trong Binh, and Senior Associate Pham Viet Anh prepared a bespoke presentation on the implications of the Labour Law.

Presented to 40 in-house HR professionals, the seminar covered:

  • Relationships with individual employees: What rules need to be respected when hiring part-time workers? How can companies hire people for specific or seasonal jobs? What are the rules on overtime? And how should companies deal with disciplinary issues?
  • Relationships with the collective labour force: Issues included employee representative organisations, the rights and responsibilities of those organisations and of employers, and prohibited conduct in the workplace.
  • Data privacy and confidentiality: What are the rules around the data privacy of employees and how can these be protected?

The team at APFL & Partners continues to monitor the latest developments in labour and important legislative areas. For more information, or to request a bespoke presentation tailored to an enterprise’s specific needs, just contact us on: contact@apflpartners.com
