Employment Manual for Hong Kong NGOs

Every day, communities across Hong Kong benefit from and rely on the numerous initiatives that local NGOs provide. Many of these NGOs work on a shoestring budget, and are reliant on a variety of workers to deliver their mission. Such workers may be interns, students, volunteers, contractors, or staff members. Managing these various types of workers and ensuring compliance with Hong Kong’s labor laws is crucial.

Following the Employment Law Roundtable Series, PILnet and Mayer Brown brought together ideas and created the “Employment Manual,” a new resource for NGOs that guides organizations through the life cycle of an employment relationship. This guide is designed to help non-profit organizations and associations in Hong Kong understand and practicably apply labor law principles to their day-to-day operations. It does so by providing practical explanations of basic labor law concepts, how such concepts commonly apply to non-profit organizations in Hong Kong, and what steps your organization can take to minimize risks associated with such concepts.
