Maternity leave pay scheme opens

The Labour Department today announced that the Reimbursement of Maternity Leave Pay Scheme is now open for applications from employers.   The statutory maternity leave (ML) under the Employment Ordinance has been extended from 10 weeks to 14 weeks effective from December 11, 2020.   Through the scheme, employers can apply for reimbursement of the statutory maternity leave pay (MLP) paid to employees in respect of the 11th to 14th weeks, subject to a cap of $80,000 per employee.   The department has appointed a processing agent to assist with the scheme’s implementation.   An application for MLP reimbursement must meet four requirements. Firstly, the employee concerned has been employed by the applicant and entitled to ML and MLP under the Employment Ordinance.   Secondly, the employee has taken her ML and the applicant has paid MLP for all of the 14 weeks to the employee.   Thirdly, the employee’s confinement occurred on or after December 11, 2020.   Lastly, the MLP paid to the employee for the additional four weeks has not been and will not be covered or subsidised by other government funding.   Employers, after paying employees all of the statutory MLP, may directly submit online applications through the Reimbursement Easy Portal.   Employers may also download the application form from the portal or obtain it from the department’s Labour Relations Division offices or the scheme's service centre at Unit 204, 2/F, South Island Place, 8 Wong Chuk Hang Road.   Call 2636 6353 for enquiries.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
