As we reported in January 2016, the Standard Working Hours Committee (SWHC) set up by the Hong Kong Government previously announced various directions on working hours policy after deliberating the findings of its survey as well as the public engagement and first-stage consultation.

The SWHC has now announced that its second-stage consultation on this topic will run between 25 April and 24 July 2016 to enable the collection of the views of the public and stakeholder organisations which will then be used in the preparation of the SWHC's report to the Government. The full text of the consultation document can be accessed here and pamphlet information here.
