Landmark Cases

To protect the interests of scheme members, MPFA strictly enforces the requirements of the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Ordinance (“MPFSO”) (Chapter 485, Laws of Hong Kong). The MPFA takes enforcement action against offending employers as well as non-compliant scheme members.

This section sets out some actual enforcement cases that the MPFA has handled. The relevant legal requirements are illustrated by offences committed by some employers and scheme members. Employers and scheme members are advised to take note of the lessons of the cases so as to ensure that they comply with the law.

Case 1 : How come I have another employer?

Case 2 : Who is the employer?

Case 3 : What is genuine self-employment?

Case 4 : Do employers need to make MPF contributions for short-term contract staff?

Case 5 : Early withdrawal of accrued benefits on grounds of permanent departure from Hong Kong?
