Helen Liao discussed about jurisdiction of the Labour Tribunal in the fourth episode of "Labour Law – Grab n Go" video series

In this fourth episode of "Labour Law – Grab n Go", Helen Liao, Partner of our Employment and Pensions practice, gives insight into a recent case Ma Ngai Cheung v Cobow Contracting & Engineering Company Limited [2021] HKDC 264. In this case, the District Court held that the Labour Tribunal should normally have jurisdiction over the employment dispute, unless the case involves complexity of facts or laws (e.g. foreign laws involved) or mixed claims. Such jurisdictional issues should also be dealt at early stage before substantial time and costs have been incurred.
