Gov’t urges employers to implement flexible working arrangements

This includes being more lenient in granting leaves for parents of school children.

Employers in Hong Kong have been urged to make flexible working arrangements for their employees and consider work from home “where practicable” as the city continues to grapple with COVID-19.

In a statement, the government called on employers to be “compassionate and show understanding toward their employees who may have been experiencing "practical difficulties" due to the epidemic.

Employers were likewise advised to be more lenient and flexible in granting leaves for those who need to take care of the children and toddlers amid the suspension of face to face classes in primary schools, kindergartens, and child care centres.

Granting paid leaves or allowing off-site work for employees undergoing compulsory quarantine or testing requirements were also encouraged.
