The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) is investigating reports of more discriminatory job ads against Singaporeans.

In a statement posted on Facebook, MOM said it would be looking into a number of reports from the public, and have asked the employers to take down any discriminatory job ads immediately.

The Ministry also warned employers about the wording of job ads, regardless of whether they are posted by themselves or recruitment agencies.

The offending companies were instructed to post apologies on their websites for 30 days.
