A Hong Kong District Court ruled last month that a logistics company must pay HK$920,000 (£94,170) to a former female employee for pregnancy discrimination.

The court found the company had unlawfully refused to renew the woman’s employment contract and withheld her yearly bonus because of her pregnancy in violation of the city’s Sex Discrimination Ordinance (SDO).
