Minor Employment Claims Adjudication Board
The Minor Employment Claims Adjudication Board (MECAB) established under the Minor Employment Claims Adjudication Board Ordinance (Cap. 453) adjudicates minor employment claims each involving not more than 10 claimants for a sum of money not exceeding $15,000* per claimant. Any employment claims above the jurisdictional limit of MECAB will be adjudicated by the Labour Tribunal of the Judiciary.
* Only applies to a claim for which the right of action arises wholly or partly on or after 17 September 2021. The jurisdiction of MECAB is confined to a claim not exceeding $8,000 per claimant if the right of action arose wholly before 17 September 2021.
