Singapore PMETs have mediation channel for work grievances
 
Singapore - Singapore professionals, managers and executives with employer disputes will have a mediation channel where they can air their employment grievances soon. 

Introduced as a new Bill in the Singapore Parliament recently, the proposed dispute mediation scheme will help PMETs settle employment conflicts over salary payments, retrenchment benefits and contract breaches.

The channel, which will be a tripartite scheme under the government, trade unions and employers, will commence in early 2011. It is also expected to benefit over 500,000 PMETs. 

Koh Juan Kiat, executive director of Singapore National Employers Federation assured that employers will also have their voice heard at the mediation hearings. "We are hoping that employers will also see this as a way to help them resolve conflicts speedily."
