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

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.
