Rikvin’s Head of Operations, Mr. Satish Bakhda, was approached by Straits Times journalist Amelia Tan to comment on MOM’s recent action against 15 errant companies.
In gist, 15 Singapore firms, of which 10 were employment agencies, face a 6-month restriction on hiring workers from overseas. This is because they have posted job ads that were not in line with TAFEP’s guidelines.
In the report “15 Firms Rapped for Discriminatory Job Ads”, Mr. Bakhda said that the days when it was cheaper to hire a foreigner are gone. He added that it makes more sense to hire a local now.
Thank you very much Amelia for letting us be a part of your story!
