Practical Law: Employment and Employee Benefits in Vietnam 2024

Lawyers from Tilleke & Gibbins’ labor and employment team have contributed a new Vietnam chapter to Thomson Reuters Practical Law’s Employment and Employee Benefits Global Guide. The guide provides a high-level comparative overview of employment laws and regulations across various jurisdictions around the world. Tilleke & Gibbins also contributed the Myanmar chapter of the guide.

The Vietnam chapter covers a wide range of typical employment matters, such as limitations on working hours, paid leave requirements, minimum wage, and health and safety obligations. In addition, the guide provides insight on a number of topics of special interest to foreign investors doing business in Vietnam, including the following:

  • Mandatory contents of a labor contract;
  • Visas and permits required for expatriate employees;
  • Employers’ obligations for protecting employees’ privacy and personal data;
  • Procedural requirements for the dismissal of an employee;
  • Employer and parent company liability.
