Contractors' performance closely monitored by LCSD

In response to the enquiries about the suspected non-compliance with contract terms by a cleaning contractor at the leisure venues in Kwun Tong district managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, a spokesman for the department issued the following statement today (March 25):

"The department has all along closely monitored the performance of contractors and measures are in place to ensure that the contract terms are strictly complied with.

As a measure to monitor the contractors and protect the benefits of their employees, the department has taken the initiative to ask the contractors to post up notices of committed wages at the venues.

In addition, contractors are required to enter into written employment agreements with their employees, listing the conditions of service, including wages.

Should there be concrete evidence of any breach of the contract terms, action will be taken to terminate the contract.

Regarding the Kwun Tong case, complaints were received early this month (March) from the contractors' employees that they did not receive the contractual level of wages as displayed at the venue.

The department immediately started investigations into the case and also notified the Labour Department for investigations under the Employment Ordinance.

This afternoon, the contractor concerned provided up-to-date and detailed information of wages paid to its employees. The department is now examining the documents and the employees are being contacted to verify the wage records.

If any criminal offence is involved, the case will be referred to law enforcement agencies for follow-up.
