Legal Update Newsletter December 2013

Our Part I of this Legal Newsletter introduces a legal article titled “Sexual harassment in the workplace – Burden on enterprise?” written by our lawyer Ms. Nguyen Van Quynh – Associate and Dr. Le Thi Anh Nguyet, issued in The Saigon Times on November 14th 2013. In this article, we analyze some issues related to the identification of sexual harassment behaviors in the workplace from the law of Vietnam, experiences and insights from foreign law and some proposals for enterprises to help the employees perform the necessary operations in order to protect themselves.

In Part II, we would like to provide you with some remarkable regulations as follows:

  1. Some outstanding adjustments of the new Law on Land
  2. Expansion of subjects entitled to participate in unemployment insurance
  3. Validated guidelines on implementing the Law on amending and supplementing the Law on Value-Added Tax
  4. 17 cases of foreign exchange eligibility in the territory of Vietnam

Our Question and Answer section in Part III will provide you with legal information related to the signature of a separate probation contract or a labour contract including probation clause, and the obligations of the enterprises toward employees in two cases.

Apart from the above, as usual, a list of new selected regulations is available for your further reference.

We hope that this Newsletter is of use to you. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
