16th April 2019 – (Hong Kong) Baby Jane Allas was finally awarded HK$30,000 instead of the original HK$84,061 claim after both parties came to a settlement at the Labour Tribunal on Monday. Her ex-employer, Jamil Bushra did not attend the hearing as she was pregnant. Her relative attended the trial in lieu of her absence.
The judge was sceptical of the indefinite HK$60,000 damages claimed as part of the total HK$84,061. The claims, amongst others, included damages for emotional distress. Allas eventually gave in to a deduction of the total damages claimed and she vowed to go through the Equal Opportunities Commission to make the balance claim for discriminating against someone who has a disability.
