The Employment (Amendment) Ordinance 2020 (Amendment Ordinance) would take effect on 11 December 2020. The Amendment Ordinance seeks to increase the maternity leave under the Employment Ordinance (EO) (Cap. 57) by four weeks. The Amendment Ordinance also covers two technical amendments which include updating the definition of "miscarriage" under EO; and accepting a certificate of attendance issued by medical professionals as documentary proof for entitling an eligible employee to sickness allowance for any day on which the employee has attended a medical examination in relation to her pregnancy.
