HK Protests: What are your responsibilities as an employer?

Read the article:

Kathryn Weaver, managing partner of Lewis Silkin Hong Kong, A prominent legal expert on employment law in Hong Kong says employers need to be fully aware of their rights and responsibilities during this summer of unrest, which has seen ongoing protests that at times have resulted in personal injury or damage to property.

Weaver says businesses should have in place a business contingency plan that they can implement in these circumstances.

“If they don’t, for whatever reason, and an employee is injured, even if that’s on the way into work or exiting work, then that individual could bring a claim against the employer, and there could be compensation that needs to be paid in these circumstances. So that’s the first thing to think about, employee safety, which I think is paramount in a lot of employers’ minds.”
