Do sponsors have to attend the Employers' Orientation Programme?

A sponsor is required to attend the Employers' Orientation Programme (EOP) on the legal employer's behalf only if the employer is a first-time employer and has a valid reason for not being able to attend, e.g. physical disability.

The sponsor does not have to attend the EOP if the legal employer attends the programme, or if the sponsor or the sponsor's spouse has employed a foreign domestic worker before.
