Work injury compensation to rise

March 19, 2021

Compensation for work injuries and death from job-related causes will be increased from April 15.


The 2.68% to 18% rise will be applied to 18 items under the Employees' Compensation Ordinance, the Pneumoconiosis & Mesothelioma (Compensation) Ordinance and the Occupational Deafness (Compensation) Ordinance.


The amendments were gazetted today.


The Labour Department said the compensation levels are adjusted every two years.


The new levels will enhance protection for injured employees and the families of deceased employees, it added.
