A tripartite committee is being set up to examine if laws against workplace discrimination should be introduced and if so, what their scope should be and how to avoid pitfalls seen in other countries. Revealing this in Parliament on Monday (Jul 26), Manpower Minister Tan See Leng said the pros and cons must be carefully studied, and Singapore must be wary of inadvertently deterring employers from setting up shop here. He was responding to MPs Patrick Tay, Saktiandi Supaat and Louis Ng, who called for existing efforts to be given more bite.
