    "Job hopping" among foreign domestic helpers / DSE app glitches

    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about calls to tackle "job-hopping" among foreign domestic helpers.

    Authorities last year announced that a revised employment agencies' code of practice would be published this quarter, as some employers are struggling to retain their helpers despite having invested in hiring fees.
    The amended guidelines are expected to add new provisions to deter the trend, such as banning agencies from providing monetary incentives to helpers who change employers. However, critics worry that the code's non-legally binding nature will not be enough of a deterrent.
    Some employers' groups have suggested tightening immigration rules with proposals to create a database blacklisting helpers deemed to change employers too often.
    What really is "job hopping"? Do you think that it should be regulated? Or is this a right all employees should be entitled to?
    After 9:45, we talk about plans by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer to stress test public institutions' mobile apps, after an app used to record DSE students' attendance suffered a glitch on exam day.

    Alleged language discrimination on a Hong Kong-bound flight / Cheung Chau Bun Festival

    主持人:Andrew Work and Janice Wong

    On Thursday’s Backchat we’re talking about the sacking of Cathay cabin crew who were apparently caught on tape disparaging a mainland passenger. An audio clip that has sparked outrage on mainland social media contains what seems to be a conversation between cabin crew poking fun at a passenger who asked for a 'carpet' instead of a 'blanket' in English. The airline has repeatedly apologised for the incident, and swiftly sacked three staff members. Chief Executive John Lee has expressed dismay at the apparent discrimination -- saying the incident was 'vile', and that it has damaged Hong Kong's reputation for being respectful, courteous and inclusive. Is bias and discrimination a widespread problem in the service industry? Or is this an isolated case? How welcoming is our service industry to our guests and customers? After 9:45, we’ll talk about the Cheung Chau Bun Festival that will take place on Friday. Let us know what you think. You can leave a message here on our Facebook page, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.
