4 Ways to Prevent Employees Abusing Sick Leave

I fractured my finger last week. Much to my surprise, I was given a doctor’s note for a recommended 8 days sick leave from work. Seeing that I’m still a functional human being, albeit a slightly slower typer, it really escaped me as to why I should be recommended any sick leave at all!

Lai See in Hong Kong – making your Job easier!

You may already know that every Chinese New Year, red envelopes, popularly known as “Lai See”, change hands throughout Hong Kong as a gesture of good luck and prosperity for the coming year. The tradition of giving “Lai See” is done under the general principle of the older generations giving to the young, and those with more money giving to those with less.
