Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the major characteristics of employment discrimination in China's transition from a centralized planned economy to a socialist market economy. It talks about prospects for new legislation and institutions for tackling employment discrimination. Finally, the author discusses some dynamic ideas put forward by Chinese legal scholars on dealing with the problem of employment discrimination from systematic and institutional perspectives, such as enacting equal employment law and establishing new institutions to handle employment discrimination complaints and disputes. In handling the current blatant discrimination, priority should be given to enacting a law that safeguards citizens' rights to equal employment and that bans various types of employment discrimination. Anti-discrimination in employment requires governmental bodies to set a good example.
