- The employee is authorized to representative the state investment in another enterprise;

- The employee is authorized to represent the enterprise’s investment in another enterprise;

- Other circumstances as agreed by both parties.

A fine ranging from VND 3.000.000 to VND 7.000.000 shall be imposed upon an employer for commission of one of the following violations:

- Placing employees in jobs at places other than the ones agreed in employment contracts, except for the cases specified in Article 29 in the Labour Code;
