Hong Kong Public Holidays Amendments Appoved
 
(Posted on Thursday, December 15, 2011)

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Legislative Council has voted to approve the recently-submitted General Holidays and Employment Legislation (Substitution of Holidays) (Amendment) Bill 2011 which to change the day in lieu substituted when certain non-working public holidays fall on a Sunday.

The aforementioned "General Holidays and Employment Legislation (Substitution of Holidays)(Amendment) Bill 2011" will thus amend the Employment Ordinance (EO) and the General Holidays Ordinance (GHO), to avoid Saturday being counted as a substitute public holiday.

This follows last year's announcement (15-Feb-2010), by Hong Kong's Chief Executive, Donald Tsang, which was re-confirmed last month (10-Nov-2011).
