Doubts remain over re-employment efforts for older workers

I do not deny that there have been attempts to encourage re-employment. 바카라사이트

However, the glacial pace of progress has cast doubts on whether these have really been effective or supportive.

In addition, despite the efforts of agencies advocating fair employment and non-discriminatory employment, unfair practices exist with very little recourse for the mature employee.

For example, despite an employee doing exactly the same job, there are employers that extract a pay cut the moment that employee crosses a certain age - and the guidelines do not prohibit it. 인터넷카지노

It is in the national interest that re-employment efforts be given some teeth without further delay.

 

The measures thus far have been more business-friendly than fair. As corporate citizens, businesses have a responsibility to ensure that willing, able-bodied Singaporeans are employed. This has become more pressing given our ageing population.

Furthermore, it is no encouragement that despite the longstanding tripartite engagement and despite the efforts of Cabinet ministers helming the NTUC, employers still have to be encouraged to re-employ fairly. 인터넷바카라

It has been at least a decade since re-employment was mooted. Either the Government is being too soft on employers or the employers are not taking the Government seriously.
