AmCham – “What HR issues have kept you up at night?” – Managing an HR Crisis in Vietnam

Nowadays, most companies in Vietnam are well equipped to deal with day-to-day HR issues, whether it involves processes such as performance management, changes to workplace policies or standard dealings with the trade union, most companies are aware of how best to proceed.

But what about a company’s preparedness to deal with an HR crisis that can severely impact its operations and overall security in Vietnam? For instance, how would the company deal with a senior employee who is refusing to return key materials and property, such as the company seal, upon termination? What about a situation whereby a court, who is considering an active matter, imposes an interim measure banning the company’s foreign senior management from leaving Vietnam? Or how would a company respond if employees suddenly exercise their prerogative to go on strike?
