Working Together for Injured Workers in Hong Kong

By January 29, 2016Project Update

Following the release of report on the social review on the Employees’ compensation insurance system in Hong Kong, Professor Paul Yip met with Hon Mr Lee Cheuk Yan in a working meeting (22 Jan 2016) to explore ways to help injured workers return to work. Discussions in the meeting include existing barriers identified in the report, such as the long waiting time to receiving medical and health services and mindsets of injured workers. All parties at the meeting saw the pressing need of removing these barriers and improve the system for the wellbeing of injured workers.
