Employer fined for wage offences
     Sincerity International Auctioneer Limited was prosecuted by the Labour Department (LD) for failing to pay wages amounting to about $170,000 to four employees within seven days after the expiry of their wage periods, as required by the Employment Ordinance (EO). The employer pleaded guilty at Kwun Tong Magistrates' Courts today (June 22) and was fined $84,000.

     "The ruling helps disseminate a strong message to all employers that they have to pay wages to employees within the time limit in accordance with the EO," a spokesman for LD said.

     "We do not tolerate the above offences and will continue to make dedicated efforts in enforcing the EO and safeguarding employees' statutory rights," the spokesman added.
