The External Employment Service administers the Contracts for Employment
Outside Hong Kong Ordinance which governs the conditions of employment
to local employees working outside Hong Kong for overseas employers.
- The Contracts for Employment Outside Hong Kong Ordinance requires
that the terms of employment for manual employees and those non-manual
employees with monthly wages not exceeding HK$20,000 employed by foreign
employers going outside Hong Kong for employment must be clearly laid
down in a written contract. The contract must be attested by the Commissioner
for Labour before the employee's departure from Hong Kong. Particulars
which must be contained in such contracts are prescribed. For further information on the Ordinance, please read A Guide to The Contracts for Employment Outside Hong Kong Ordinance.
- The External Employment Service assists both parties in drawing up
the contract and in resolving any disputes in the event they should
arise. It also conducts contract reading sessions to ensure that an
employee understands the terms of the contract before attestation.
For any enquiries about the contract attestation, please call the External
Employment Service at 2852 3511 or approach us at 12/F., Harbour Building,
38 Pier Road, Central, Hong Kong.
