Mayer Brown Legal Update
The introduction of shared parental leave is intended to provide a framework to support modern working families and allow them to balance childcare responsibilities. Three sets of draft regulations covering shared parental leave and pay have just been laid before Parliament and are due to come into force in December 2014. Two more sets of draft regulations are awaited (expected to cover the ‘curtailment’ of statutory maternity pay and maternity allowance) and new ACAS guidance on shared parental leave will be published shortly.

Mayer Brown JSM Legal Update
Since the commencement of the Companies (Disclosure of Company Name and Liability Status) Regulation (Cap.622B) ("Regulation"), a subsidiary legislation of the Companies Ordinance (Cap.622) in March this year, practitioners and compliance professionals have been concerned about its impact on company operation. In particular, they are concerned about early indications from the authorities that full compliance means a company registered by both an English name and a Chinese name ("bilingual names") must use both names in all circumstances where its registered name is required to be displayed or stated under the Regulation.

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has settled charges that two of the leading online barcode resellers violated Section 5 of the FTC Act by inviting competitors to collude and raise prices for barcodes sold over the Internet. Even though the settlement essentially only requires the online barcode resellers to agree not to break the law, the order also puts them in the undesirable position of operating under FTC supervision for a number of years.

A Review of Key Cases and New Laws Affecting Employers
Mayer Brown Newsletter
Decision: The US Supreme Court recently decided two cases concerning contraception and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Both Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.,and Conestoga Wood v. Burwell involved owners of closely held for-profit corporations that alleged they have “sincere Christian beliefs that life begins at conception” and that “it would violate their religion to facilitate access to contraceptive drugs or devices that operate after that point.” The owners in both cases asserted that four of the 20 contraceptive methods that are required to be covered under the ACA fell within that category.
