The Ministry of Manpower has introduced significant changes to labour legislations in recent years. These changes mainly focus on employment standards and benefits, moderating the growth of foreign manpower, enhancing productivity and more importantly, ensuring that Singaporeans remain the core of our workforce.

Besides having a profound impact on the continued employment and management of people in various business sectors / industries, these changes also inevitably affect companies' profit margins.

Our speaker, JANARTHANAN SELVARAJOO, is currently a HR Chief Consultant in private practice. He had spent eleven years in the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and his diverse portfolio includes that of Assistant Commissioner for Labour, Head of Labour Court, Director of Employment Inspectorate, and Deputy Controller of Work Permit.
