    Employment 101 for SMEs:
    Visas & Employment Laws

     Breakfast | 15 Nov 2017

    There are many moving parts when considering the immigration implications for an SME or start up in Hong Kong seeking to hire and retain foreign national talent. Our speaker Stephen Barnes will overview the visa types in play for such smaller or nascent business operations, the exact criteria for approval and tips and tricks on how to overcome challenges and legal workarounds where a preferred visa, at first blush, might not be available.

    In the meantime, our legal expert Samantha Cornelius will present on key employment law considerations for small businesses, particularly as they relate to employment contracts, IRD reporting requirements, MPF, insurance and payroll obligations. She will focus on basic legal requirements, risks of criminal offences/penalties and practical tips to help keep you and your business on the right side of the law.
