After weeks of mandatory social distancing, Hong Kongers are beginning to return to their normal routines as more businesses reopen and end temporary work-at-home arrangements. Join the AmCham Law Committee on Monday, 1 June 2020, at 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., for a discussion led by Jennifer Van Dale, Partner and Head of Eversheds Sutherland's Asia employment practice and Hong Kong data privacy practice, on how Hong Kong employment law applies to returning to the workplace. The session will explore topics including current trends of Hong Kong employees returning to the workplace, employers obligations under laws such as the Hong Kong Employment Ordinance, details on support for businesses available through the Hong Kong Employment Support Scheme (ESS), and the future of work and remote working in Hong Kong.
