China – Are WeChat Conversations Admitted as Evidence by the Courts?

[Labour Law] – WeChat is the most popular social network in China. It is used daily as a professional communication and management tool. It is also regularly used to manage attendance, send information and contracts, organise meetings, hold online meetings, etc. 

One of the recurring questions being asked is whether all of these WeChat conversations may be submitted to a court as part of a labour dispute and if so, what conditions must be met in order for these exchanges to be considered admissible evidence by the judges. 

Along with the answer to this question, Gao Jing provides some recommendations on using We Chat content as evidence, on cases where an employee uses WeChat exchanges against you and, more generally, on good practice in using WeChat professionally.
