27 Jul 2021 12:17pm
There are currently no plans to review the minimum annual leave entitlement, said Senior Minister of State for Manpower Koh Poh Koon in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 27). He said annual leave must be seen in context alongside other employee entitlements like paid public holidays, sick leave and childcare leave, and must be carefully considered as it entails business costs. He was responding to MP Louis Ng, who said Singapore has a relatively low minimum entitlement compared to others in this region and that it is likely the lowest-income workers who get the minimum seven days of annual leave.
