Labour Day | Making it work: family-friendly policies in the workplace
Play • 31 min

We celebrate Labour Day with a discussion on parental leave policies and challenges that Migrant Domestic Workers (MDWs) face with employers during pregnancy. Alyson Hau (Presenter & Producer, RTHK) asks our Adam Hugill about legal protections afforded to individuals in case of discrimination in the workplace as well as the relatively recent legal changes to parental leave, while Alisha Fernando (Head of Diversity & Inclusion – APAC at Bloomberg LP) highlights the family-friendly policies that the company grants to its staff and the upsides of talent attraction and retention that should be at the core of every business. Catherine Gurtin (CEO of PathFinders) talks about issues related to (mostly unplanned) pregnancy of MDWs and gives advice to employers.
