Legal Update

Three Days to Full Enforcement of the Competition Ordinance

11 December 2015
Mayer Brown Legal Update

The Competition Ordinance (Cap. 619) comes into force on Monday, 14 December 2015.

The new legislation may make unlawful any arrangement with a competitor which could lead to fixing wages, preventing solicitation of employees, or boycotting of competitors. HR professionals are reminded to avoid disclosing competitively sensitive information with their counterparts at competing employers. Terms of engagement with intermediaries such as recruiters and salary consultants should also be reviewed to ensure employers’ interests are appropriately safeguarded.
