Fixed-term contracts have a predetermined start and end date and are typically used for temporary or seasonal employment. These contracts may be renewed if both the employer and employee agree to do so.

Open-ended contracts, also known as indefinite-term contracts, have no predetermined end date and can be terminated by either the employer or employee with appropriate notice. These contracts are typically used for permanent employment.

  1. Minimum wage: Employers in Hong Kong are required to pay their employees a minimum wage, which is determined by the government and reviewed and adjusted periodically.
