Labour Department urges employers to be flexible in releasing employees from work in consideration of traffic and road conditions
     The Labour Department (LD) today (October 10) urges employers to be flexible in releasing employees from work as necessary, having regard to traffic and road conditions. This will help maintain good labour-management relations and ensure the safety of employees.  
     "Employers should take into account the traffic and road conditions and make flexible arrangements to release employees from work to enable those who need to commute by public transport to return home smoothly. Employers should also give due consideration to the circumstances of individual employees and handle each case flexibly," an LD spokesman said.
