Amendments to the EFMA in effect from 9 November 2012

The changes will strengthen the Ministry of Manpower’s enforcement capabilities, and ensure compliance with our work pass rules.

The EFMA will be amended in three ways:

  1. Establish a new administrative penalty regime;
  2. Create new offences and infringements with higher penalties; and
  3. Include new presumption clauses and enhance investigatory powers to step up enforcement against syndicates and errant employers
