As a regional business hub and an open economy, Singapore has an eclectic mix of human capital. The Singapore government has a well-thought out and structured legislation in place in the form of the Singapore Employment Act (SEA), which is the main labor law of the country.
The SEA clearly spells out the basic terms and conditions of employment and the rights and responsibilities of employers as well as employees under a contract of service.
The Singapore government also ensures that the Act, while in line with the international legislations, also provides adequate protection to all vested parties in the process of employment. Developing a proactive and harmonious labor, industrial and government relationship has remained the top priority of the legislation.
