Latest arrangements on Labour Department public services


In light of the extension of special work arrangements for government employees and the latest development of the novel coronavirus infection, the Labour Department (LD) announced today (February 1) that the LD will provide limited public services between February 3 (Monday) and February 8 (Saturday). Except those provided by the Employment Agencies Administration (EAA), other counter services will remain suspended.

The EAA will provide limited counter services during office hours (from 9am to 1pm and from 2pm to 6.15pm) from Monday to Friday for receiving applications for licence for employment agencies.

Two Occupational Health Clinics and Occupational Medicine Units under the department will remain closed. For those who have made medical clearance appointment with Occupational Medicine Units, please reschedule your appointment through the internet or telephone voice booking system.

The LD will review the situation in due course and announce the arrangements thereafter.

For enquiries, members of the public can call the LD’s 24-hour enquiry hotline at 2717 1771 (the hotline is manned by “1823”).
