Introduction

 

The HR function is a key player within any organization’s compliance structure. There are numerous complex and layered laws and regulations governing the employment relationship that HR professionals must understand and navigate in order to help their organizations avoid costly fines and other penalties, including the potential harm to the organization’s reputation. The landscape of Singapore’s employment law has seen a number of changes in 2016 and 2017, most notably the amendments to the Employment Act, the key piece of legislation governing employment relations in Singapore as well as the setting up of the Employment Claims Tribunal, which adjudicates contractual and statutory salary-related disputes between employees and their employers.

 

These updates to HR, Employment Law and Employment Tribunal render it mandatory that all HR professions be aware of the changes and their implications on their organizations’ HR processes and procedures. Furthermore, they also need to play a critical role in future-proofing their organizations by planning and implementing new appropriate HR procedures and policies to ensure full compliance with regulatory and statutory requirements.
