Unionists and employer representatives discuss changes to Employment Act
Over 70 unionists and employer representatives came together to discuss proposed changes to the Employment Act this evening.
It's part of the Manpower Ministry's public consultation exercise that started in April.
The townhall meeting also saw members of the public join in.
Changes to the Employment Act are likely to be tabled in Parliament in March next year.
Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said the review is necessary to ensure the Act stays relevant to evolving employment norms and practices.
And one of the proposed changes will see more protection for professionals, managers and executives (PMEs), for instance, against unfair dismissal.
