Programme Introduction

Course Objective
This half-day workshop is to prepare employers with practical tips if and when employees/ex-employees were to lodge salary and benefit claims against the organisation. When the employer is notified to attend a meeting at TADM, the clock has already started ticking …

Practically all employees in Singapore may now lodge salary and benefit claims with the Tripartite Alliance Dispute Management (TADM) for mediation, and Employment Claims Tribunal (ECT) for adjudication. This arises from the enlarged scope of the “employees” covered by the Employment Act since 1st April 2019, and the transfer of the hitherto ‘Labour Court’ (colloquial) to the ECT.

Learn ahead how to navigate and prepare well for the TADM and ECT processes which are regulated by the 1st April 2019 amended Employment Claims Act and its subsidiary legislations.

Workshop discussions will also include practical tips in employment contracts to mitigate the risk of such claims.

Target Audience
HR & Line managers & executives who make staffing, deployment and compensation decisions.

Mix of lectures, discussions and sharing of practical examples.

Ms Ang Poh Inn is Director, Industrial and Workplace Relations Division, SNEF.
