What's On

Registration Closed

In recent years, the calculation of wages has undergone substantial changes. For instance, an amendment to the Employment Ordinance which took effect on 13 July 2007 requires various types of pay be granted in accordance with the average daily wages the employee earned in previous 12 months, and that Extra Compensation under the Minimum Wages Ordinance must be granted to eligible employees. These have brought increasing challenge to many employers and HR professionals. This workshop will take these 3 ordinances into consideration and guide participants through a step-by-step approach on the lawful calculation of wages.

1. Definition of "Wages"
2. Definition of and pay for "hours worked"
3. Granting over-time pay and compensation
4. Granting Statutory Holidays and pay
5. Arranging and defining pay for Rest Days
6. Granting Annual Leave and pay
7. Granting Paid Sickness Days and Paid Maternity Leave
8. Terminal compensation – Payment-In-Lieu, Severance Payment and Long Service Payment
9. The offsetting (and the proposed cancellation of offsetting) arrangement with the MPF accrued benefit.
