Hiring contractors in Hong Kong can be a rollercoaster

Hiring independent contractors in Hong Kong presents a unique challenge to employers. Ranked as the fourth-place financial center in the world, this city is a special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China. This means employers must be aware of employment laws passed by Hong Kong’s government as well as Chinese laws when hiring independent contractors. Furthermore, it’s crucial to classify your contractors correctly to avoid misclassification penalties. Rippling helps you grow your team quickly and remain compliant with labor laws.
