In addition, the said annotations contain notes, practical aspects and contentious issues associated with particular sections in a succinct manner, including definitions of words and phrases.
Those engaging in or interested in employees’ compensation in Hong Kong, such as lawyers, businesspeople, in-house counsel, company directors, company secretaries, Human resources managers, and judicial officials, will find this Handbook an invaluable companion.
