East Asia is home to China, officially the People’s Republic of China. It is the most populous country in the world with a population of over 1.4 billion. China borders 14 countries, spans five time zones, and is the second-largest country in the world after Russia. It is the third or fourth-largest country in the world, with a territory of around 9.6 million square kilometers (3,700,000 square miles). In the country, there are two Special Administrative Regions, four municipalities, five autonomous regions, and 23 provinces (Hong Kong and Macau). Shanghai is the largest city, whereas Beijing is the nation’s capital.
In the prosperous Yellow River region of the North China Plain, one of the world’s first civilizations, China, emerged. China was one of the most powerful economies in the world from the first through the eighteenth century. Since the semi-legendary Xia dynasty in the 21st century BCE, China’s political system has been based on dynasties, or absolute hereditary monarchy.
Since then, China has expanded, split, and reunited several times. In the third century BCE, the Qin united central China and established the first Chinese empire. Some of the most advanced technologies of the time, such as papermaking and the compass, as well as improvements in agriculture and medicine, were developed during the Han dynasty (206 BCE to 220 CE).
Gunpowder and movable type were added to the Four Great Inventions during the Tang and Northern Song dynasties (618–1127). Tang culture spread across Asia as the new Silk Road drew traders from as far away as Mesopotamia and the Horn of Africa.
In the nineteenth century, the Qing dynasty—ultimate China’s dynasty and the basis of modern China—suffered enormous losses at the hands of the Western empire.

The Social Security Bureau where the person is registered determines the amount of maternity leave compensation based on the average monthly earnings for the previous 12 months. Social Welfare would pay this amount or three times the minimum wage, whichever is greater. Some nations, like Beijing and China, supplement maternity pay with additional salary.

Severance and termination in China notice
If an employer unilaterally fires an employee for one of the following reasons, they are required to provide the worker with 30 days’ written notice or one month’s salary in lieu of notice. The employee is unable to resume the original employment (or any other work) allocated to them after the statutory medical treatment time has passed due to a sickness or non-work-related injury. The individual is incapable of performing the obligations of their work and is unable even after receiving training or switching jobs.
The objective conditions under which the employment contract was signed have significantly changed, making it difficult to fulfill the terms of the agreement, and after consultation, neither the employer nor the employee are able to come to an agreement on changing the terms of the agreement.
Except in the situations mentioned above, the employer is not required under national laws and regulations to provide advance notice or money in place of notice when terminating an employee. Although certain regional laws (such as those in Beijing) demand prior notice or payment in place of notice when terminating an employee’s employment.
