Ian Lim comments in ST: “New guidelines set out what constitutes wrongful dismissal”

In a news article published by Business Times on 2 April 2019 on the new tripartite guidelines on wrongful dismissal developed by the Manpower Ministry (MOM), National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), head of employment and labour Ian Lim found the guidelines useful, but called for more clarification. For instance, how to prove cases when a contractual termination is a wrongful dismissal in disguise. He added that it is a welcome move that discrimination is expressly spelled out in the guidelines as grounds for a finding of wrongful dismissal, as it is not otherwise dealt with in the Employment Act.
