Abstract: Through analyzing primary and secondary data, this paper argues that flexible employment practices in Hong Kong are largely employer-driven. This feature is explicable by the low level of government intervention in industrial relations, the development of the labor movement, and the Asian fi nancial crisis that accentuated employers’ prerogatives in employment relations.
