Singapore firm charged for unfair hiring

A logistics company in Singapore was today (14 January) charged for unfair hiring practices  a first here.

In July 2019, the Ministry of Manpower found that Ti2 Logistics had made a false declaration in an employment pass application (EP pass) for a business development manager position.

They falsely declared that they had fairly considered and interviewed two Singaporean candidates before trying to employ a foreigner, reported The Straits Times.

Employers convicted of offences under the Foreign Manpower Act can be jailed for up to two years, fined $20,000, or both.
