Labour Department urges employers to show understanding and flexibility in work arrangements of employees due to traffic conditions

     The Labour Department (LD) today (October 5) urged employers to make flexible work arrangements for staff having regard to traffic and road conditions likely occurring during the day. This will help maintain good labour-management relations and ensure the safety of employees and the smooth operations of establishments.

     "For staff who cannot report to work on time on account of conditions in road traffic or public transport services, employers should give due consideration to the circumstances of individual employees and handle each case flexibly," an LD spokesman said.
