About

Fair Employment agency had the idea of using technology to empower both migrant workers and employers. By giving them the information they needed, they could avoid the notorious pitfalls of Hong Kong’s domestic labor market and rely less on shady agencies.

What we did

Using information from all stakeholders, we created an app that would help both parties understand their rights and responsibilities, and access support. The app included a calculator for working out termination pay and annual leave. It offers push notifications providing timely and relevant updates to statutory holidays, changes in the law, and other key developments.

Result

This highly rated app has been downloaded several thousand times. It helps both employers and employees know their rights and is helping to tackle shady practices in Hong Kong’s labor market.
