By Chia Boon Cher & Edmund Baker
With special focus on the latest amendments to the Employment Act and the employment of Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs).
Since this book was first published in 2010, the Ministry of Manpower has made numerous amendments to the Employment Act. In the 2nd Edition of this book, the authors had provided the readers with an updated version based on the major amendments in April 2014. In the 2nd Edition, a new chapter on part-time employment was also added.
Following the amendments to the Employment Act effective 1st April 2019, the authors have decided to publish this 3rd Edition to keep the readers up-to-date. Apart from updating this guide book with the latest amendments, they have also took the opportunity to re-write some of the questions and answers to provide more clarity. A new chapter on the Employment Claims Tribunal has also been added to highlight the new avenue available for all workers and PMEs to resolve employment disputes.
