First Class Action Lawsuit against “Reversion of Employment Age” Finally Registered --Four Initiators of the “Civil Proposal” File Suit against Ministry Of Human Resources and Social Security, and Await Trial

October 13, 2016

Through the current policy of “reversion of employment age,” a significant number of people who underwent Reform-through-Labor, or who were fired or dismissed, or who voluntarily resigned from their jobs are unable to claim pension and medical insurance otherwise accumulated from their time working. Invariably, in old age these people become “victims of the ‘reversion of employment age’” policy. Dissidents who were dismissed or who received criminal sanction as a result of exercising their legal rights to free expression are among the victims. Four dissidents from Qingdao, Mou Chuanheng, Jiang Fuzhen, Zhang Xiaoxu and Jiang Chunyuan, have established precedent by bringing a suit as “co-plaintiffs” against Ji Min, head of Qingdao Human Resources and Social Security Bureau. After facing numerous obstacles and fighting repeatedly, the complaint was finally accepted and the case is now awaiting trial. They are determined to fight to the end in accordance with the law.
