On 1 May 2013 the New Labour Code took effect, completing a long process of consultations which involved numerous seminars, meetings, conferences and public hearings. Close to ten Decrees have been issued within last couple of weeks to implement the new Labor Code. Concurrently, the new Personal Income Tax has also amended and will take effect on 1 July 2013. All of these changes will have a profound impact on HR issues of enterprises investing and doing business in Vietnam. In this context, either as directors, in-house counsels, or HR managers, we should familiarise ourselves with all these changes to be able to navigate any corporate HR issues that may arise under this changing labour and tax law landscape.
