    Restructured and updated to reflect timely issues regarding legislation against discrimination, including legal rights and recognition of same-sex couples and strengthening the laws against harassment in work places, no matter the gender or sexual orientation.

    • Cap 480: Sex Discrimination Ordinance (SDO)
    • Cap 487: Disability Discrimination Ordinance (DDO)
    • Cap 527: Family Status Discrimination Ordinance (FSDO)
    • Cap 602: Race Discrimination Ordinance (RDO)
     
    THE MOST UP-TO-DATE AND AUTHORITATIVE REFERENCE GUIDE ANALYSING AND EXPLAINING HONG KONG’S ANTI-DISCRIMINATION LAWS
     
    This new edition has been completely re-structured and revised to offer a concise, detailed section-by-section analysis of all the provisions of Hong Kong’s four Anti-Discrimination Ordinances. The relevant provisions of each Ordinance have been discussed, enhanced with:
    (i) legislative amendments; (ii) recent cases, including analysis of the issues surrounding same sex marriages and transgender identity; (iii) comparative notes linking each Ordinance; and (iv) commentary on proposed law reforms.
     
    Significant issues are reviewed and examined, including: (i) combing the four existing antidiscrimination laws into a single modernised Discrimination Ordinance; (ii) recognition and protection for persons in de facto relationships (as opposed to a heterosexual marriage); (iii) laws protecting new immigrants (i.e. Mainlanders) from discrimination; (iv) introducing new protections as the current anti-discrimination regime overlooks several grounds of discrimination; and (v) equal protection to both men and women (as as well as ‘gender x’ representing transgender and intersex people) from sexual harassment in common workplaces.
