Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for Manpower whether he can provide a status update on the proposed enshrinement of the guidelines of the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment into legislation given its announcement at the 2021 National Day Rally, including an update on (a) whether the Committee has completed its work and made recommendations; (b) whether the Government has accepted the Committee’s recommendations; and (c) when is the Government planning to introduce the Bill in Parliament.
Dr Tan See Leng: The Tripartite Committee on Workplace Fairness is currently still deliberating the scope, requirements, procedures and remedies of the new legislation.
As part of its work, the Committee is consulting various groups to get views from workers, employers, the HR community and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
The Committee is expected to complete its deliberations in a few months and we will then be able to share more information. There will be an opportunity for public comment. The Government will then study and respond to the recommendations.
