Labour Department launches 2021 Working Hours Situation Household Survey
     The Labour Department (LD) announced today (September 1) that it has launched the 2021 Working Hours Situation Household Survey to collect information on the working hours situation of the local workforce and their views on working hours arrangements. The information collected will assist the Government in formulating working hours policy and implementing related education and publicity activities to promote a family-friendly employment culture.
     The LD has commissioned a research firm to conduct the survey. Participating living quarters have been selected from the database of the Census and Statistics Department using a scientific sampling method. All eligible household members living in the quarters will be invited to participate in the survey. The LD appeals to the selected households to actively support and take part in the survey. 
     The selected households are being informed of the survey arrangement via notification letters. Each visiting enumerator will carry an Enumerator Identity Card issued by the LD and the commissioned research firm for verification.
     The personal and household data collected in the survey will be kept in strict confidence. All questionnaires will be destroyed within 12 months after the end of the survey period.
     Enquiries regarding the survey may be directed to the enquiry hotline of the commissioned research firm (Tel: 3900 1220) or the Working Hours Policy Division of the LD (Tel: 3586 3951). For more information about the survey, please visit the LD's webpage at www.labour.gov.hk/eng/plan/WHSHS.htm.
