SINGAPORE: The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) on Thursday (Jan 18) launched a month-long public consultation exercise to seek feedback on areas being considered in the review of the Employment Act. 

Singapore's main employment law is regularly reviewed to "keep pace with the changing labour force profile and employment landscape", MOM said in a press release, adding that the Act was last reviewed in 2012 with amendments coming into effect in 2015. 

Since then, the tripartite partners - MOM, the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) - have had "further discussions" and identified broad areas for review to ensure the Act remains relevant while enhancing its coverage, the Manpower Ministry said.
