Hong Kong Employment Law Essentials in a Changing World (Part 1): Reduction in Force and Restructuring

In the post-pandemic landscape, many businesses have experienced substantial shifts in their operational needs. Organisations may find themselves having to restructure their workforce and to make the difficult decision to implement redundancies. The webinar provides key practical takeaways in navigating the process, covering the nuanced interactions between the statutory framework and the express and implied terms of the employment contract, the importance of retaining employees during the notice period, how to structure a settlement to close off the relationship and managing complex multijurisdictional employment rights.

This webinar was moderated by Pattie Walsh, Head of Bird & Bird's Asia Pacific Employment team and included a panel consisting of members of our Hong Kong Employment team.
