If an employer informs that there will be a retrenchment exercise, but has not yet identified specific employees, does the employer need to notify MOM?

Employers are strongly encouraged to fill in the early alert form to provide an early indication of your planned retrenchment exercise and indicate your interest for Workforce Singapore (WSG) to provide employment facilitation assistance for affected workers.

Subsequently, after the employer has identified which employees are to be retrenched, the employer will need to notify MOM within 5 working days after each employee has been notified of his or her retrenchment.
