While there is a compelling need for hoteliers to understand the People's Republic of China's new Employment Contract Law, previous studies on human resource management in China have neither focused on the hospitality industry nor addressed the impact of labor laws. In response, this study differentiates the new and old versions of the labor law. A comparative analysis covering 10 areas was also performed. It is expected that this study will provide personnel managers with insights into how to develop better strategic human resource management through the promotion of collective responsibility and through the creation of an improved employment culture in the industry.
