Guidelines Released on the Re-employment of Older Workers in Singapore

The Singapore government intends to introduce re-employment legislation to take effect on 1 January 2012. The Tripartite Committee on Employability of Older Workers was charged with the task of working through the practical aspects of the re-employment legislation and producing guidelines for employers. The guidelines were finalised following a round of public consultation in late 2009.

The guidelines are not legally binding. Rather, they are intended to assist employers and employees to prepare for the implementation of the re-employment legislation in 2012. The guidelines identify good re-employment practices that employers are encouraged to adopt in advance of the legislation coming into effect.
