On January 7, the Zhejiang Provincial Department of economy and information technology, together with the Provincial Department of human resources and social security, issued the notice on encouraging retained employees to stabilize production and ensuring a “good start” of high economic quality (hereinafter referred to as the “notice”). The circular listed 10 measures to encourage local and enterprises to retain employees and stabilize production during the Spring Festival, ensure the smooth supply chain of the industrial chain, and promote a “good start” of high-quality economy.
The first one is to encourage foreign employees to stay in Zhejiang for the new year. Enterprises are encouraged to take measures such as issuing “red envelopes for staying at work”, improving dining conditions, arranging cultural tourism activities, etc. to attract foreign employees to stay in the local area for the Spring Festival as far as possible, and appropriate subsidies can be given to those areas where conditions permit.
The notice also mentioned that enterprises with large orders and heavy production tasks are encouraged to make plans for employees to avoid peak holidays and take compensatory leave during the Spring Festival. According to the actual situation, the production arrangement for the first quarter will be increased, and workers will be retained on post and salary.
The ten specific measures of the circular are as follows:
1、 Encourage foreign employees to stay in Zhejiang for the new year. All localities should, according to the actual situation of production and operation, encourage enterprises to take measures such as issuing “red envelopes for staying at work”, improving dining conditions, and arranging cultural tourism activities, so as to attract foreign employees to stay in the local area for the Spring Festival as far as possible, and appropriate subsidies can be given to those areas where conditions permit. Organize various “send warmth” activities to express sympathy to employees who stick to their posts and create a good atmosphere of caring for employees from other places. For those foreign employees who really need to return home for the new year, we should guide enterprises to take off peak holidays, minimize travel pressure and reduce the risk of epidemic prevention and control.
2、 Guide enterprises to arrange production plan scientifically. On the premise of firmly adhering to the bottom line of safety production, enterprises with more orders and heavy production tasks are encouraged to formulate plans for employees to avoid peak holidays and take compensatory leave during the Spring Festival. According to the actual situation, the first quarter output arrangement is increased, and the employees are retained by post and salary. We will support local governments to formulate policies in line with local conditions, and give certain rewards to industrial enterprises that maintain continuous production and full production in the first quarter. Make full use of the provincial enterprise operation monitoring and risk prevention platform, carry out continuous production of key enterprises and start (resume) work situation monitoring and risk warning after the Spring Festival, timely grasp the situation of enterprise employees, production capacity, orders in hand, project construction, etc., adjust and optimize the department work and service plan according to the enterprise production arrangement, and actively help resolve the problems encountered in the enterprise continuous production To solve the difficult problems, and enhance the ability to deal with all kinds of risk challenges and development confidence.
3、 Coordinate with enterprises to arrange production stop and maintenance reasonably. In order to ensure the safe production and orderly operation of the enterprises, local governments are encouraged to actively explore differentiated factor prices to guide enterprises to flexibly arrange shutdown and overhaul, and postpone non urgent and unnecessary shutdown and overhaul plans to the second quarter. Strengthen the service of stop production maintenance enterprises, support enterprises to strengthen daily maintenance.
4、 We will support enterprises to make overall plans to stabilize their posts. Give full play to the role of surplus and shortage adjustment mechanism, carry out various forms of labor surplus and shortage adjustment activities, help enterprises with large short-term employment demand during the festival, connect enterprises with early holidays and more surplus employees in advance, and promote the employment balance among enterprises. All localities can encourage and support human resource service agencies to provide employment services in the form of government purchasing services. Enterprises are encouraged to arrange production flexibly, carry out skills training for employees, and implement training subsidy policies according to regulations. We will give full play to the role of unemployment insurance in stabilizing employment, and continue to implement the policy of returning unemployment insurance premiums to the insured enterprises that do not or do not reduce the number of employees. We should do a good job in the management of “four lists” for the monitoring of Industrial Enterprises above Designated Size, key foreign trade enterprises, enterprises with planned layoffs and enterprises without jobs, carry out data comparison and analysis in time, and do a good job in the prediction of employment situation.
5、 Make every effort to ensure the production factors of enterprise festivals. Improve the emergency plan to deal with extreme weather, strengthen the coordination with the transportation department, and guide the normal production enterprises to prepare enough raw materials during the Spring Festival, so as to ensure that there is no shortage of supply due to the shortage of transportation capacity during the holidays. We should strengthen communication and coordination with power supply, water supply, gas supply, heat supply and other departments to ensure the stable supply of various elements.
6、 Do a good job in ensuring the life service of employees in enterprises. All localities should actively coordinate with relevant departments according to the peak shifting situation of local migrant employees, and strengthen the supply guarantee of public services such as medical and health, public security and fire control, catering, public transportation, public rental housing, education and training, so as to ensure the normal production and life of employees in enterprises.

We will further smooth the channels of labor and social security rights protection, fully implement the mechanism of “one local complaint, province wide linkage”, carry out centralized reception activities of wage arrears complaints, and simultaneously resolve all kinds of wage arrears disputes online and offline. We should implement the responsibilities of local governments and departments, strengthen source stability control and diversified solutions, implement risk prevention plans, and solve the problems of unstable factors and mass incidents in the bud and at the grassroots level.
8、 Guide the production enterprises to implement the epidemic prevention and control measures. All localities should guide enterprises to make emergency plans for epidemic prevention and control during the Spring Festival, and encourage enterprises to keep their employees in the local area for the Spring Festival according to the principles of reducing personnel flow, travel risk and personnel aggregation. It is necessary to fully cooperate with the epidemic prevention department, strictly implement the epidemic prevention and control regulations, and implement the registration system of rework employees in other places, so as to ensure full coverage and no omission. Enterprises are encouraged to keep their employees from medium and high risk areas as far as possible.
