The Employment (Amendment) Bill was first read on 2 October 2018 and subsequently passed in the Parliament on 20 November 2018. The amendments to Employment Act will take effect from 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.
