Reaching Out to Graduating Students

Young graduates join the workforce every year – with little or no working experience to deal with workplace issues relating to employment contracts and their employment rights as a professional worker.

We make it a point to reach out to these graduating students and share our motivation for and expertise in advocating for their employment rights in Singapore. Earlier this month, we hosted a group of Human Capital Management students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic to share how our work affects their roles as Human Resource practitioners in the future.

Some of the key points shared include:
•    Labour law changes advocated by the Labour Movement for Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs) in Singapore, including the Employment Act, Fair Consideration Framework & National Jobs Bank, Protection from Harassment Act and Industrial Relations Act; and
•    The upcoming initiatives such as the Employment Claims Tribunal, which functions in a similar fashion to the Small Claims Tribunal, but with a focus on remuneration disputes

As the needs of every indivdual in the workforce depend on the stage of the career they are in, the presentation was highly targeted to provide information that will be the most useful to them.

By passing on information about employment rights to these graduating students, we can empower more PMEs in Singapore with knowledge of their workplace rights and obligations.
