Title NGO study finds gaps in the Labour Court system Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Straits Times Media type Duration/Length/Size Newspaper Article Country/Territory Singapore Date 29/06/17 Description SINGAPORE - A study by a local non-government organisation (NGO) that helps low-wage foreign workers has found gaps in the Labour Court system.
It has led to these workers falling through the cracks in a system meant to protect them, said Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2) at a Singapore Management University (SMU) forum on Thursday (June 29).
The Labour Court, part of the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), hears employment-related complaints such as disputes over salary, dismissal and paid leave. The hearings are held behind closed doors and lawyers are not allowed to represent workers or employers. It costs workers $3 to take their complaints to the Labour Court.
