Can a foreign worker get a refund of agency fees if their employment is terminated and their EA has shut down?

If a foreign worker’s employment is terminated within 6 months, the worker is entitled to a refund of at least 50% of the agency fees paid to the Singapore employment agency (EA).

If an EA is no longer in operation, it must still ensure that it fulfils all its obligations to workers, including the responsibility to refund fees.

Foreign workers who need help recovering their fees can contact MOM for assistance.
