Part Time (Non-Full-Time) Labour Relation

The difference between part time and full time labour relation.

Part Time labour  is also governed by labour contract law, but it is quite different from full time labour:

  • The working hour system of part time labour:

1. The remuneration is generally calculated on hourly basis;

2. The average working hours of a worker per day shall not be more than four hours and the cumulative working hours per week for the same employer shall not be more than 24 hours;

  • The form of the Labour Contract:

Both parties may conclude an oral agreement.

  • The labour relation of part time is not exclusive.

Any worker that conducts non-full-time labor  may conclude labor contracts with one employer or more, but no labor contract concluded later may influence the performance of the labor contract concluded previously.

  • No probation period

The employer shall not stipulate clauses of probation period in Part time labour contract.

  • No requirements of notice in advance and compensation when terminating the relation.

             Either of the parties related to non-full-time labor may notify the other party to terminate the labor at any time. When terminating any non-full-time labor, the employer shall pay no economic compensation to the worker.

  • The standards for the remuneration

The minimum hourly salary rates are prescribed by local government.

The minimum hourly salary in Shanghai (2011) is 11RMB, and social insurance is not included in this salary.

  • The remuneration shall be paid  within 15 days.
