Hong Kong is regarded as an international city with a high level of female labor force participation, approximately 55 percent in recent years. Yet Hong Kong is not actively addressing work–family interface issues. This chapter begins with a brief description of the Chinese cultural context of Hong Kong, and conceptualization of work–family interface and family-friendly employment policies and practices (FEPPs). An overview of FEPPs and their benefits will then be provided. In addition, a review on research on FEPPs in Hong Kong will follow. Implications of research findings for the work–family interface at societal, organizational, family, and individual levels will also be provided in this chapter.
