EOC Gives Legal Assistance in Family Status Discrimination Case


The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) has today issued legal proceedings under the Family Status Discrimination Ordinance, Cap. 527 in the District Court on behalf of a person who was dismissed by her employer after her son had fallen sick seriously and she had to take leave to take care of her son.

The EOC has granted legal assistance in this case on the basis that the case has public importance as it would illustrate the application of the Family Status Discrimination Ordinance.
