On 18 May, Hong Kong Labour Rights Monitor published the report ‘The State of Labour in Hong Kong 2022’.
The report examined the condition of labour rights in Hong Kong in four areas: the economy and labour market, labour legislation and policies, violations of labour standards, and trade union activities and collective workers’ actions in Hong Kong. Labour rights in Hong Kong were hit hard by the COVID outbreak and the National Security Law (NSL) in 2022, according to the research.
