About The Book

Like its first, the second edition of this guide serves to outline the employment laws in Singapore in simple language to help readers, especially HR practitioners and tertiary students majoring in Human Resources Management, to have a better understanding of the rights and obligations of both employers and employees. Many real life scenarios faced by HR practitioners are shared in this guide. It must be said that the solutions given in this guide are by no means exhaustive, but they will certainly be useful for the many common issues that HR practitioners may face in the course of their work.

In this second edition of the guide, there are significantly more scenarios and suggested solutions for each topic as it is critical for HR practitioners and students alike to fully appreciate the applications of the employment laws. It also provides timely and insightful updates on the recent amendments to the employment laws, such as the re-employment guidelines and the new employment dispute resolution mechanism for professionals, managers and executives.

This book will continue to be a valuable resource for those who want to learn more about employment laws in Singapore.
