SINGAPORE: Salary thresholds for calculating type of local worker set to increase from 1 July

In Singapore, Employers with more local workforce are permitted a higher number of foreign workers; two part-time local employees are equivalent to one full time local employee.

Effective 1 July 2017 the salary threshold for determining a full time employee and a part-time employee will increase. Only if those salary thresholds are met will the number of local employees count towards determining the quota for foreign workers. Any local employee that does not meet the salary threshold will not count towards the quota.

In 2018 the threshold is set to increase further.

How does this affect the client?

 If Employers do not increase the salary of their current local workforce or hire additional workers on the part-time threshold then they risk losing some of their foreign worker quota allocation.
