Over the past three years, the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices handled an average of 400 discrimination cases annually. In about 50 cases each year, the employers were found to be in breach of fair employment practices and had their work pass privileges suspended, said Minister of State for Manpower Gan Siow Huang in Parliament on Thursday (Mar 4). About 60 per cent of such cases involved nationality-based discrimination and about one-third involved gender and age discrimination, spread about equally between the two, she said in reply to an MP's questions.
