IMPACT OF WARNINGS FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AND ACQUITTALS IN CRIMINAL CASES ON MIGRANT WORKERS’ ABILITY TO WORK IN SINGAPORE

MP Leon Perera

Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for Manpower whether migrant workers who have received warnings from law enforcement agencies or have been acquitted in criminal cases are automatically barred from working in Singapore.

Dr Tan See Leng: MOM puts law and order of Singapore first and foremost. This must prevail over the interest of the foreign work pass holder to remain in Singapore. While foreign work pass holders who have received warnings from law enforcement agencies or have been acquitted in criminal cases are not automatically barred from working in Singapore, MOM would have to consider the circumstances and seriousness of his actions that resulted in a warning or acquittal for the foreign work pass holder, when making its decision.
