||The system of Mainland China's labor law adjusts the work relations. It not only relates the legal standard with the social relationship but also has an important law field of conserving labors' rights and interests, coordinating labor relationship, promoting economy development and the society progresses.
Along with the reform of mainland China, in order to adapt these changes, many correlative labor relations laws formulate one after another. However, people in the Mainland China were still quite short of the idea of rule-by-law. Therefore, to expect the mainland people having the correct understanding to the correlative labor relations would be not so easy. These problems are the tough matters that enterprises who set up factories in the mainland and recruit manpower met. From the standpoint of worker, the enterprise uses loophole of laws and regulations in the Mainland China to deprive worker's legal right and benefit. From the standpoint of enterprise, the worker does not pay attention to the enterprise’s interior regulations, the correlative labor laws or basically does not have concept of rule-by-law, which unavoidably causes conflicts when the enterprise utilizes these workers. Consequently, if both sides trying to avoid a labor dispute because of the law relations, and to restore the normal labor relations, they should correctly understand the work legal system.
