Gan Siow Huang on reviewing measures to better protect FDWs

(Updated: )

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) is reviewing measures in three areas to strengthen support for foreign domestic workers (FDWs) and reduce the risk of abuse, said Minister of State for Manpower Gan Siow Huang. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Mar 8) in reply to an MP's questions, she said MOM will make greater use of touchpoints with employment agents to ensure that new FDWs are settling in well. At the same time, MOM is working on reporting by doctors on possible abuse and distress. MOM is also expanding its outreach and engagement efforts to strengthen the network of support.
