ABSTRACT:  This study analyzes the changes in labor policy on migrant workers in Hong Kong and Malaysia as a result of the Asian Financial crisis. The researchers used the descriptive and socio-economic analysis to support their gathered data. The paper provides findings on the pattern in the flow of Filipino Migrant workers to Hong Kong and Malaysia that in turn, also affected the labor supply and demand of Filipino workers in these countries. Then an analysis on how the Asian Financial Crisis and its implications to labor led to certain policy shifts by looking at Hong Kong and Malaysia with the used of the simplified labor supply and demand. It concludes that the high economic growth of Hong Kong and Malaysia attracted the flow of Filipino migrant workers. It also concludes that the scarcity of the US dollar and the devaluation of the currencies of Hong Kong and Malaysia led to an increase in the cost of labor, therefore decreasing the labor demand for migrant workers created policy shifts in Hong Kong and Malaysia after the Asian Financial crisis. The impact of the crisis on Filipino migrant workers in Hong Kong had a minimal effect since there was a supplementary labor scheme which provided protection for foreign workers but unfortunately, the scheme was shelved. While in Malaysia, the impact of the crisis on foreign workers had a greater effect as compared to Hong Kong because Malaysian government did not provide the same protectionist policy. Another conclusion was the effect of the Asian Financial crisis on migrant workers in Hong Kong and Malaysia led to certain labor policy shifts. In Hong Kong, supplementary labour scheme was shelved and on the other hand in Malaysia, the major policy pertains to the repatriation and retrenchment of unskilled migrant workers.
