Au Lut Chi and Kyra P.S. Kung of Gilt Chambers have co-annotated the recently released Butterworths Hong Kong Employees’ Compensation Handbook – Seventh Edition and The Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong: Employees’ Compensation Ordinance (Cap. 282).
These two practitioner publications cover the latest development and case law on the Employees’ Compensation Ordinance (Cap. 282), including the Employees’ Compensation (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 which has come into effect since July 2, 2021. The law is amended to cover situations where an employee is injured or dies as a consequence of an accident while commuting to or from work during periods of “extreme conditions” resulting from a super typhoon or other natural disaster of a substantial scale.
We express our thanks to LexisNexis Hong Kong for its invitation to annotate the said Ordinance.
