• Cap 487: Disability Discrimination Ordinance (DDO)

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.
