The Lewis Silkin Hong Kong team is delighted to invite you to the second of our HR Breakfast Club series of 2019.
Our Breakfast Club series is designed to bring HR professionals and in-house counsel up-to-date with the most recent developments in employment and immigration law in Hong Kong and beyond
The topic at our 2 April event will focus on terminating employment in Hong Kong, China and Singapore and address the legal issues and pitfalls to avoid.
The decision to terminate an employee carries with it certain risks for employers. Terminations have to be handled carefully, so as to protect the business against any potential claims from former employees.
It is therefore crucial for HR professionals and in-house employment counsel to have a solid understanding of the legal framework and issues involved with terminating an employee, and to be able to navigate the trickier issues that can arise in a termination situation.
For example, should a PIP always be followed before terminating an employee for performance reasons? If an employee fails to attend a disciplinary hearing for serious misconduct, can you proceed to terminate anyway? What are the pros and cons of placing an employee on garden leave vs paying them in lieu of notice? Our HR Breakfast Club session on 2 April will address these questions and more, covering the legal issues and pitfalls to avoid when dealing with terminating employees.
This will be an interactive and practical session, where attendees will discuss case studies and best practice on this important topic. Whilst the focus of the session will be on Hong Kong employment law, we will also explore the legal framework and main points to note about terminating employment in China and Singapore.
