The pandemic has changed many aspects of the workplace. However, in Hong Kong the pandemic has incited some positive changes within the workplace. Two major developments are set to take effect by the end of 2020 and by the mid-point of next year, 2021. First, new anti-discrimination laws are set to be implemented in June 2021. Secondly, a new maternity leave policy is set to go into effect sometime before the end of 2020. Maternity leave and paternity leave rights continue to be a hot topic, and it appears that Hong Kong is looking to be on the right side of history as it expands maternity benefits and ensures expecting and new mothers have adequate support and are provided ample amounts of time to recover and spend time with their family before returning to the workplace.
