All EC insurers and employers are advised to take note that the Legislative Council passed a resolution on 30 June 2010 to increase the amounts of five compensation items payable under the Employees' Compensation Ordinance Cap. 282 (ECO) by around 2.34%.
To allow time for employers and the insurance industry to prepare for the implementation arrangements, the revised levels of compensation shall take effect from 1 August 2010. At this stage it is not clear whether the amendments will also apply to accidents which happen before 1 August 2010.
