Dennis Tan on Employment (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
NCMP Dennis Tan spoke in support of the Employment (Amendment) Bill in Parliament on Tuesday (Nov 20). He did, however, raise some concerns about proposed changes related to wrongful dismissal. For instance, an employee can claim they were forced to resign under circumstances created by the employer, which Mr Tan said could be open to possible abuse. He also asked why - for managers and executives - the period of service before they can lodge a wrongful dismissal claim is being reduced from 12 to six months.
