Development and Reform of China’s Employment System reviews the evolution, reform, and achievements of China’s employment system over a period of 30-plus years since 1978, predicts future trends, and puts forward feasible ways and suggestions for further development. Comprising seven parts, the book covers a wide range of meaningful topics such as the market-oriented reform of state-owned enterprises, reemployment of layoffs, transfer of surplus rural labor, the formation and development of China’s public service system, the proactive government policy for job creation, and the laws and rules promulgated by the government in terms of employment and social security. For each major employment policy, the book presents the historical background against which it was proposed and then provides detailed description and analysis of this policy, its implementation, its achievements, and lessons learned.
