Employment & Benefits (Businesses)
There are employment laws and regulations in Singapore with which employers must comply. Failure to comply can result in severe penalties. The best employers do more than ensure they are fulfilling their legal obligations, however. Your lawyer can also represent you if your company is engaged in a grievance procedure or have an employment claim that is due to be heard by a court or (as from 2017) an employment claims tribunal.
What employment law questions can you as a business get advice on?
Contracts of employment
Your lawyer can ensure that the contracts of employment your business issues comply with the law, and are clear and easy to understand. It is important to have in place effective policies and procedures that operate in your business.
Dismissal & Redundancy
If you need to know how to go about dismissing employees or to make them redundant in the right way to comply with the law, your lawyer will be able to give you authoritative advice.
If your business is involved in a grievance procedure or a claim by an employee, your lawyer will be able to advise on the correct procedures to follow and, if it comes to it, to represent you in any hearing.
