Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for Manpower since April 2017, in Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management mediations where a settlement is reached for wrongful dismissal cases (a) what percentage of claimants have reported failure to comply with the settlement terms by the other party; and (b) what actions have been taken to assist these claimants.
Dr Tan See Leng: The Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM) started mediating wrongful dismissal claims from 1 April 2019 when the adjudication of wrongful dismissal claims under the Employment Act and Child Development Co-Savings Act were transferred from MOM to the Employment Claims Tribunals.
Between April 2019 and September 2022, all settlement agreements for wrongful dismissal cases have been complied with.
In the event of non-compliance with the settlement agreement, claimants may initiate writ of seizure and sale (WSS) against their employers – TADM and NTUC will guide the claimants through the WSS process.
