HKICPA encourages the accounting profession to support employees’ uptake of COVID vaccinations

01 June 2021

(HONG KONG, 1 June 2021) With the continuing threat of COVID-19 outbreaks, the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) encourages the accounting industry to introduce policies to support their employees’ participation in the Government’s COVID-19 Vaccination Programme. HKICPA has led by example by providing staff two days paid leave after vaccination since early May.

Life in Hong Kong is slowly returning to normal, but the group restrictions will remain until the community is protected. Full-scale community events, and less-restricted travel across the border to the Mainland and internationally, can also only take place once the community is protected. “The accounting profession is well-regarded by society. It is up to us to lead the way in being vaccinated, as we can only end this pandemic by taking care of ourselves and protecting society,” said Mr. Raymond Cheng FCPA (practising), President of HKICPA.

He continued, “Maintaining a safe and healthy environment at work is always a top priority for the Institute. The management has adopted this special two days paid leave arrangement to facilitate and encourage staff members who wish to get vaccinated to protect not just their own health, but also that of their families, friends and colleagues.”

The HKCIPA’s policy offers Institute staff vaccination leave to be used the day, or the day following, they receive a COVID-19 vaccination.  

 

香港會計師公會鼓勵會計界持僱員接種新冠疫苗

(香港,二零二一年六月一日)社會仍然受新型冠狀病毒疫情威脅,香港會計師公會鼓勵會計界採取政策,支僱員參與政府的疫苗接種計劃。公會亦擔當帶領的角色,在五月初起為內部員工提供最多兩天的有薪疫苗假。

本港日常生活逐步重拾軌道,但在廣大市民獲得足夠防疫保護之前,群體社交措施仍不能鬆;而社會得到全面的保護,亦是恢復社會活動、放寬內地及國際跨境旅遊的重要條件。香港會計師公會會長鄭中正先生,執業資深會計師,表示:「會計專業向來備受社會肯定,業界要發揮帶頭作用,支持接種疫苗以保護自己及他人,令疫情儘早遠去。」

他續說:「公會一向重視工作環境安全及健康,管理層希望透過兩天有薪假的特別安排,鼓勵及方便有意接種疫苗的員工以行動來保護自己,並保障家人、朋友及同事的健康。」

公會為內部員工提供接種疫苗假,讓員工選擇在接種當日或翌日申請休假。
