to have violated this Code of Practice for agencies

By The SUN

An employment agency operating out of three offices across Hong Kong has had its licence revoked for multiple violations of the industry’s Code of Practice, according to a press release issued today, Jul 23, by the Hong Kong Labour Department.

The press statement identified the agency as Saint Happy Maids Agency, which has offices in Mong Kok, Yuen Long and Tsuen Wan.

Saint Happy Maids was found to have involved itself in the financial affairs of foreign domestic helpers, failed to draw up service agreements with employers, failed to include all required items in the service agreement with employers and helpers, and failed to provide receipts for payments made by employers.

It was the third agency to be stripped of its license by LD’s Employment Agency Administration this year. The two others were Fardiansyah International Limited in Yaumatei and Perfect World Employment Services Co in Tai Po,

Last year, eight agencies lost their licence for non-compliance with the Code, including  Unity Employment Limited, Happy J Employment Agency, Tin Wai Employment Company Limited, Good Family Employment Agency Company Limited, Galaxy Maid Employment Consultants Limited, and JK Company.
Three agency operators were prosecuted, while at least 20 agencies were warned for various violations, including Saint Happy, which received a warning on Feb. 19.

The statement said the Employment Ordinance empowers the Commissioner for Labour to revoke the license of an EA if he is satisfied the licensee concerned or an individual employed by the licensee has not complied with the Code.
“The Code sets out the salient legal requirements that EA operators must observe in operating their business, as well as the minimum standards which the commissioner expects from EAs,” an LD spokesman said.

The LD reminded all employment agency operators to comply with the law and the provisions of the Code at all times.
