Between 2016 and 2020, the Ministry of Manpower issued at least a warning to an average of 160 work pass holders each year for illegal employment. All of them were debarred from working in Singapore. Senior Minister of State for Manpower Koh Poh Koon, who said this in reply to an MP's questions in Parliament on Monday (Aug 2), highlighted the penalties for work pass holders and employers who flout the rules, as well as efforts to raise awareness among foreign workers on their rights and responsibilities.
