Find all the important information about wages, working hours, insurance, and statutory leave across Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and more.

In an increasingly fragmented world of work, how to manage employees across different parts of the world is at the top of the agenda for companies of all sizes.

However, each working location has its own laws and regulations, thus business leaders and HR professionals have to keep abreast of the latest updates or face the risk of falling into legal pitfalls.

With that in mind, Links International has recently compiled the 2022 Mid-Year Asia-Pacific Labour Law Comparison Chart, which covers a total of 16 key markets in the legislation comparison of wages, working hours, insurance, and statutory leave, as a reference for employers.
