Despite years of incentives and cooperation agreements between the government and trade unions, employers with dubious employment practices continue to hurt pounds sterling in Singapore.
I have seen and known employers who continue to pay their salaries despite better advice, even after seven days of a following month, despite being well informed, they are running rules and regulations if they do not pay their costs by the seventh. day of the next month.
Equally shocking are employers who harass their employees, even after they have given up their actual employment, or those who categorically deny employees the privilege of a holiday announced by the government.
That is not all.
There are even bosses who request their charges to undergo polygon tests; a practice full of ethical and legal implications and of which I have always thought that this was the only domain of the police.
Just as painful is the practice of sexual harassment and procedural misconduct – by design or accident – employing employers to formalize employment contracts.
