What is WorkRight

WorkRight seeks to raise national compliance with the Employment Act and the CPF Act. It was introduced in 2012 by MOM and the CPF Board.

Who it is for

For employees, WorkRight helps you understand your basic statutory employment benefits, through the “I Know My Employment Rights” education campaign.

For employers, WorkRight helps you be more familiar with your employment obligations, so that you can better look after the rights and welfare of your workers.

To help employers comply with employment laws, inspectors also conduct workplace visits to provide information on employment laws. Through employee interviews, inspectors provide advice to employers on areas of improvement and helps employers learn about their legal obligations to employees.

What it covers

WorkRight’s areas of focus include:

  • Payment of CPF contributions.
  • On-time payment of salaries.
  • Overtime payment.
  • Provision of paid annual and sick leave.
  • Adherence to requirements regarding working hours.

How it works

Everyone has a part to play, whether you are an employer, employee, or concerned member of the public.
