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.

While data privacy—especially data breach—cases have been on the rise for years now, most cases never make it past the pleadings or Article III of the U.S. Constitution. Federal courts frequently dismiss data-privacy complaints for lack of Article III standing, i.e., injury in fact. Article III has become the first (and often last) line of defense for companies accused of improperly collecting or protecting consumer data, particularly given the high costs of discovery and potential exposure in such cases.

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.
