Company fined $90,000 for contravening Employment Ordinance
     Long Victory (China) Limited was prosecuted by the Labour Department (LD) for violation of the requirements under the Employment Ordinance (EO). The company was convicted at Kwun Tong Magistrates' Courts today (November 21) and was fined $90,000. The company was also ordered to pay an outstanding sum of about $280,000 to the employees concerned.

     The company failed to pay two employees in accordance with the EO wages and payment in lieu of notice totalling about $260,000 within seven days after the termination of employment contracts, as well as the awarded sum of about $280,000 within 14 days after the date set by the Labour Tribunal (LT).

     "The ruling will disseminate a strong message to all employers that they have to pay wages to employees within the statutory time limit stipulated in the EO, as well as the sums awarded by the LT or the Minor Employment Claims Adjudication Board," a spokesman for the LD said.

     "The LD will not tolerate these offences and will spare no effort in enforcing the law and safeguarding employees' statutory rights," the spokesman added.
