Testing records checked

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation at Block 12 of Richland Gardens in Kowloon Bay, which was earlier included in a compulsory testing notice.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 8am to 11am by the Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Bureau together with Police and the Department of Health.   Out of the 269 people whose records were checked, three had failed to comply with the notice. They were issued with a compulsory testing order and a fixed penalty notice of $10,000. http://dlvr.it/SZ0L6X

Helpers' minimum wage unchanged

The Minimum Allowable Wage for foreign domestic helpers will remain at $4,630 per month, while the monthly food allowance will be increased by $52 to not less than $1,173, the Government announced today.   It made the decision after carefully considering Hong Kong's general economic and labour market conditions over the past year, as well as its near-term economic outlook, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.   The employers' affordability and the helpers' livelihood were also taken into consideration.   Under the Standard Employment Contract for hiring helpers, employers must provide them with free food or pay them a food allowance.
