Louis Ng on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Amendment No. 2) Bill

(Updated: )

Start a temporary scheme for employers to rehire work permit and S Pass holders who have been repatriated to their home countries in the past year, said MP Louis Ng. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Apr 5), he pointed out that companies had shut down during the painful months of the circuit breaker and dormitory lockdowns. He said it is more efficient to rehire the experienced workers who wanted to remain in Singapore but whose companies had decided to terminate their contracts and send them back. Mr Ng also stressed the need to help the construction sector bounce back.
