Employees Compensation Insurance is mandatory under the Hong Kong Employee’s Compensation Ordinance. Any Hong Kong employer (corporation or individual) that has at least one employee, must carry Employees Compensation insurance.
Employee's Compensation Insurance, also known as EC Insurance, must be held by all employers in Hong Kong. If your workers are Part-Time, Temporary, or Full Time or work as an intern, then by law you must protect your staff by an Employees Compensation Insurance policy.
This insurance protects both employee and employer in the event an employee is injured or becomes ill due to work related activities. Failing to comply with this legal code can result in severe financial penalties for your business.
Employment Compensation insurance is also needed if you an employ a Domestic Helper. You will require Domestic Helper Employment Compensation insurance.
