Draft Tripartite Guidelines on Re-Employment of Older Employees Released for Public Consultation

 

The Ministry of Manpower, on behalf of its tripartite partners, is inviting public consultation on the draft Tripartite Guidelines for Re-employment of Older Employees. This follows an earlier advisory released in April 2008 by the Tripartite Committee on Employability of Older Workers (“TriCom”). This set of draft Guidelines is an updated expansion of the advisory, incorporating feedback from both employers and unions. It seeks to help businesses and employees better prepare for the re-employment legislation in 2012. 
 
The draft set of Guidelines was announced by Minister for Manpower and Chairman of the Tripartite Committee on Employability of Older Workers (“TriCom”), Gan Kim Yong, at the Industrial Relations Seminar on 16 November 2009.
 
The public is invited to give their feedback and views on the draft guidelines via the Consultation Channel in the REACH portal by 18 December 2009. The tripartite partners will consolidate the feedback received and finalise the tripartite guidelines, which is expected to be released early next year.
