Various changes have been made to the employment-related legislations in the past year, two of which relate to the benefits and protection for the working moms:
Extension of paid maternity leave from 10 weeks to 14 weeks under the Employment Ordinance, which came into force on 11 December 2020.
Amendments to the Sex Discrimination Ordinance to provide for unlawful discrimination and harassment on the ground of breastfeeding which will come into force on 19 June 2021.
In this webcast, we will cover issues such as:
what are the maternity benefits and protection under the Employment Ordinance;
- are breastfeeding moms protected under the current anti-discrimination law;
- how will the new anti-breastfeeding discrimination law affect the employers;
- what should the employers do in preparation of these enhanced maternity benefits and protection measures; and
- case studies on pregnancy-related arrangement and breastfeeding at work.
