2019 witnesses the first major review in six years – various updates to Singapore’s Employment Act. The country is not alone in its growing measures to protect the rights of the local workforce in 2019. In several other countries, governments are reforming legislation to protect their employees. Some of the changes include The Philippine “End of Endo Act”, India’s reforms in the 4 labour-related codes, Thailand’s upcoming amendments to the Labor Protection Act.
Aside from these updates, the impact of digitalisation and gig employment brings with them new HR legal challenges in managing flexible working arrangements, internal investigations, and data privacy protection.
With Asia poised as the next important employment hub, together with the evolving labor law changes, there are key issues affecting the roles of regional HR and in-house employment counsel:
⦿ How can HR stay abreast of the labor legislative changes to timely update robust policies and make better-informed business decisions?
⦿ How can HR gain familiarity with crucial legal knowledge to incisively manage labor matters during business restructuring?
⦿ What to do to mitigate the risks of costly labor disputes?
⦿ What are the latest robust and progressive employment practices?
⦿ How to balance employment rights and obligations?
Join us at the APAC HR Employment Law Congress 2019 on 6-7 May in Singapore to be the first to know the critical updates in the jurisdictions you oversee, to create your business competitive advantage.
