Mayer Brown JSM Legal Update

Our update “A Spotlight on Fathers – the Arrival of Paternity Leave” in March 2014 referred to the imminent arrival of legislation to introduce three days’ paternity leave in Hong Kong. This proposal was greeted with unanimous acclaim and was considered to be a balanced, and possibly overdue, benefit for new fathers.

As the primary terms (three days’ leave and 80 percent pay) of the benefit had already been approved at the Labour Advisory Board (the LAB is the body comprising employee and employer representatives at which “deals” are struck concerning workplace regulation) the legislation was expected to sail through the legislative process without drama.

Unfortunately even well meaning and uncontroversial legislation can get caught in Hong Kong’s highly emotional political storm.
