The main legal sources of China’s Labor Dispute Resolution System (LDR system) are the 1995 Labor Law and the 1993 PRC Regulations for the Handling of Enterprise Labor Disputes (HELDR).Nevertheless, since the LDR system was established, China’s labor relationship has been constantly undergoing deep changes as its economy has become increasingly market-oriented. Consequently, labor disputes are more complicated than a decade ago. Numerous administrative regulations and judicial interpretations have been issued at the national level to tackle the new problems that the Labor Law and HELDR did not expect when they were promulgated.
