The PRC Supreme People’s Court and the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, on 18 January 2019, signed an Arrangement on Reciprocal Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters by the Courts of the Mainland and of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The Arrangement will only come into effect after the PRC Supreme People’s Court promulgates a judicial interpretation of the arrangement and the Hong Kong local government completes relevant procedures, and both sides announce the date the Arrangement will commence.

A full explanation of the new Arrangement, which supersedes an earlier arrangement between the two governments from 2006, can be found on Baker McKenzie’s website here.

From the employment law perspective, the most interesting development is that rulings on employment disputes are not explicitly excluded from coverage under the Arrangement (as they were under the 2006 arrangement). The Arrangement even clearly states that rulings of the Hong Kong Labour Tribunal can be recognized and enforced directly by mainland courts, without the need to re-litigate the dispute in the mainland.
