Programme Introduction

Workshop Objective

The Employment (Amendment) Bill was tabled in Parliament on 2 October 2018. The Second and Third Reading of the Bill will be sometime November 2018. If the Bill is passed by the Parliament as it is, and the President gives her assent, the amendments to Employment Act are scheduled to take effect on 1 April 2019.

About 430,000 more professionals, managers and executives will be covered by the Employment Act after the amendment. And half of Singapore’s workforce will be covered by Part IV of the Act. This round of amendments will be the most significant since the Act’s inception.

This half-day workshop is a technical walk-through (i.e. word for word) of the amendments to expect to the Employment Act. There are also consequential amendments to expect to other related Acts. The workshop aims to prepare employers on implications to their HR policies and procedures, and give the heads-up to adjust to the changes.

Target Audience
HR and People Managers
