Hong Kong Queer Literary and Cultural Festival

LGBTQ+ Rights and Benefits in the Workplace

Description

Hong Kong’s fight for the Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordinance has stretched 30 years now without result, meaning there are no labour regulations in place to protect workers of different sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression from discrimination. Yet, international corporates and local enterprises have generated various LGBT+ policies to protect their employees, some have even taken it further by making public statements to showcase their support for the LGBT+ community. While we are looking forward to more local companies hopping on the bandwagon, it is highly doubtful that such LGBT+ policies within companies are sufficient protection. To protect or not to protect, is that a notion of love or of responsibility? Such notions will be discussed from perspectives of a trade union and a corporate social responsibility (CSR) advocating business.
