On July 7, 2017, the General Office of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security ("MOHRSS") issued the Three-year Action Plan for Crackdown upon Wage Arrears and Guarantee of Wage Payment (2017-2019) (the "Plan").

The Plan clearly states that the real-name administration for employment will be put into practice in all aspects, expected to apply to over 40 percent of engineering projects under construction by the end of 2017 and 70 percent by the end of 2018 and cover almost all such projects by the end of 2019. The Plan points out that the wage deposits system will be fully promoted in the engineering construction sector, and the deposits should be paid in a differential way according to the payment of wages made by each employer; it also calls for promoting the third-party guarantee system, such as the bank guarantee, and standardizing methods concerning the collection, payment, use and return of the wage deposits. Moreover, the Plan calls for more efforts to impose harsher credit punishments on default of wages, launch a memorandum of understanding for various departments on taking joint disciplinary actions against serious wage arrears by the end of 2017, establish and organize the implementation of the blacklist of enterprises default in payment of wages, and regularly make public seriously illegal cases in respect of wages in arrears. Additionally, the Plan stresses the need to improve the system of monitoring the payment of wages, put in place provisions that require the monthly payment of wages in full amount, and give full play to the role of mediation and arbitration in resolving labor disputes.
