下岗再就业 Re-employment after being laid off
[ 2009-03-09 09:51 ]
A policy vigorously promoted by the government to help laid off workers be re-employed. To improve the efficiency and profitability of State-owned enterprises since its adoption of the reform and opening-up, the country has begun to restructure state sectors through mergers, bankruptcy and the layoff of redundant employees. That has inevitably led to a large number of workers being laid off from overstaffed enterprises.
To maintain social stability and improve living conditions of those laid off, the Chinese Government has also simultaneously launched a re-employment project nationwide to help jobless workers find new jobs by giving them occupational training, or granting them loans and preferential tax policies for them to be self-employed. The massive layoffs have also prompted the government to start building an all-inclusive social security network.
