QUESTION NO. 1534 FOR WRITTEN ANSWER
MP: Assoc Prof Walter Theseira
To ask the Minister for Manpower (a) whether the Tripartite Alliance for Fair Employment Practices (TAFEP) conducts feedback exercises with workers who have filed a discrimination or workplace harassment report with TAFEP which resulted in follow-up action by TAFEP or the Ministry; and (b) if so, what are the results of the feedback, particularly as to whether complainants are satisfied with the outcome of their case and the follow-up action taken.
Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) investigates all complaints received. Where warranted, cases are referred to the Ministry of Manpower. Where action has been taken against the employer, TAFEP will keep the complainant updated on the outcome. Many have been thankful and appreciative of the help and support to address their concerns.
