New Tripartite Advisory on Mandatory Retrenchment Notifications & Revised Guidelines on Responsible Management of Excess Manpower
SNEF has been working closely with our tripartite partners to help employers in the adoption of good employment practices.
A new Tripartite Advisory on Mandatory Retrenchment Notifications and Revised Guidelines on Managing Excess Manpower were released today, 25 Nov 2016. The tripartite partners strongly encourage employers to consider alternative ways to manage excess manpower as well as take a longer term view of their manpower needs, including the need to maintain a strong Singaporean core.
Please be advised that with effect from 1 Jan 2017, under the Workforce Singapore Agency Act, employers will be required to notify the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) of retrenchments within 5 working days after they have provided the notice of retrenchment to affected employees. The tripartite partners have issued an advisory to guide employers on complying with this new legal requirement.
