Singapore’s Fair Consideration Framework (FCF) kicks in today, as the local government continues efforts to strengthen the country’s local workforce.

As part of the FCF, companies looking to hire will have to advertise available jobs of the Workforce Development Agency’s (WDA) Jobs Bank for 14 days before they are able to submit an Employment Pass application.

On its official blog, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) clarified the FCF is “not just about acting upon complaints”.

“The spirit of the FCF is fundamentally about changing attitudes and mindsets, while addressing the manpower needs of companies. We hope to see employers making improvements in the way they hire and develop Singaporeans,” Roslyn Ten, director of the Fair Consideration Department (FCD), said.

However, when the FCD is made aware of a complaint, the ministry’s case officers will look into the company’s HR processes and evaluate their actions in context, adding they would not “presume these employers to be errant from the outset”.

The FCD will also continue to work with companies to help them comply with the new policies and grow a ‘Singaporean Core’ in their workforce.

“At the end of the day, it is about helping our fellow Singaporeans to have a fair chance at getting both job and career development opportunities,” Ten said.

“In FCD, each day presents a different challenge and our officers have the sense of duty, drive and dedication to make this positive difference. We hope the public will continue to place its trust in us and help us along the way by continuing to provide useful feedback about industry practices.”

Companies that are also looking to improve their hiring and employment frameworks are encouraged to approach the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP), which promotes the adoption of fair, responsible and progressive employment practices.
