I want like to ask for clarification regarding offer letters and employment contract in HK.
1. Is it normal/legal practice in HK to treat offer letters as employment contracts as if they are the same document?
I was offered a permanent position for an IT role and was asked to sign the offer letter with electronic signature. I asked if I can sign the employment contract but was told the offer letter is also the employment contract. And that I did not need to sign it in person, electronically signed seemed fine for them.
I have not encountered this before, is this normal in HK? Thanks for all your help ðŸ™ðŸ¼
