Zero tolerance for non-compliance of contractors

In response to enquiries on suspected non-compliance of contract terms by a cleansing contractor at leisure venues in Kwun Tong, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (May 7) issued the following statement:

"The Department has all along closely monitored the performance of contractors and will not tolerate any serious non-compliance. The department will act in accordance with the contract terms to terminate their contracts if such non-compliance is proved.

As a measure to monitor the contractors and protect the benefits of their employees, the Department has taken measures to ensure that the contract terms are strictly complied with, including requiring contractors to post up notices of committed wages at the venues.

In addition, contractors are required to enter into written employment agreement with their employees, listing out the wages and other conditions of service.

The department also appeals to workers employed by the contractors to report any irregularities direct to the district leisure services offices for immediate follow-up.

Regarding the Kwun Tong case in which a service contractor was suspected to have violated the contract terms, the collection of evidence is in progress. Legal advice is being sought from the Department of Justice.

Should there be concrete evidence of any serious non-compliance, action will be taken to terminate the contract forthwith."
