The sharing or ‘gig’ economy is changing the workplace and is set to have a wider effect on society and how we arrange our lives. Are the days of full time 9-5 jobs gone? How will employees who work part time or flexibly, self-employed service providers, agency workers, and freelancers affect the way we work and live? Are our jobs going to disappear to robots and artificial intelligence? Will robots have to pay salaries tax?
There are a myriad of legal, tax and family issues that remain unresolved. Across the world, including in Hong Kong, the policy response to these huge shifts – let alone changes to legislation - has been slow to catch up.
In this lunchtime session, employment lawyer and AmCham Governor Jennifer Van Dale will outline some of the key policy issues that Hong Kong needs to consider as the economy shifts, and whether Hong Kong’s employment legislation is up to the job.
First 15-20 minutes is for networking
Sandwiches and beverages included
Hosted by the Women of Influence Committee and Human Resources Committee
