Company fined for wage offences
     LTF Asia Limited was prosecuted by the Labour Department for committing wage offences under the Employment Ordinance. The company pleaded guilty at Sha Tin Magistrates' Courts and was fined $60,000 on January 27.

     "The judgment will disseminate a strong message to all employers that they have to pay wages to employees in accordance with the Employment Ordinance," a spokesman for the Labour Department said.
     "The Labour Department does not tolerate the above offences and will spare no effort in enforcing the law and safeguarding employees' statutory rights," the spokesman added.
