Q: In China, are there special days off for getting married and for first child?

Hello all, I am interested in knowing the labor laws in China for men employees and whether they get a few days off work when they plan on getting married and having a baby? 

 

My fiancé and I are expecting our first baby that will be born in Europe and we will get married at the same time. I was wondering if he was entitled to some days off for either one or both of these special occasions?

I heard there were a couple of days for the first baby and a couple of days for getting married. Is that correct? Where can I find the updated info?

 

I thank you in advance for all your answers and help,

government employees get this privilege but not most private employers, also contract employees would have to have it stipulated in the contract ie enlish teachers.

Hi there - I have a Chinese friend who works for an NGO that basically got 1 month off work to look after his wife and newborn after she gave birth. I thought that was quite generous in fact but I'm not sure whether they were paid or not

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
