Employer fined for wage offences under Employment Ordinance


Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      China Technology Corporation Limited was prosecuted by the Labour Department (LD) for committing wage offences under the Employment Ordinance (EO). The defendant pleaded guilty at West Kowloon Magistrates' Courts today (October 12) and was fined a total of $64,000.

     The employer failed to pay wages to two employees within seven days after the expiry of the wage periods and termination of employment, as required by the EO.

     "The judgment will disseminate a strong message to all employers that they have to comply with the requirements of the EO in paying wages to employees. Failure to effect payment of wages as required by the EO is a serious offence. The LD will continue to make dedicated efforts in enforcing the EO and safeguarding employees' statutory rights," a spokesman for the LD said.
