The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board are stepping up our efforts to bring about compliance with the CPF Act and Employment Act (EA), so that employees, particularly more vulnerable groups like low-wage workers, enjoy their basic employment rights under the law. Areas of focus include payment of CPF contributions, on-time payment of salary, overtime payment, provision of paid annual and sick leave, and adherence to working-hour requirements, amongst others.
We will do this through a two-prong WorkRight initiative covering enforcement and education. Besides ramping up enforcement, we will be reaching out to the public through a publicity campaign which aims to educate workers on their employment rights under the CPF Act and the EA, as well as to educate employers about their legal obligations.
Everyone has a part to play, even if you are not an employer or even an employee. If you know of employers that are non-compliant, you can report by calling this hotline: 1800-221-9922, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The identity of the caller will be kept strictly confidential.
