Effective from 1 July 2018, the Fair Consideration Framework rules will be expanded by the Ministry of Manpower in an attempt to encourage employers to increase the hiring of Singaporean candidates. The expansion of the rules is designed to bring more employers and roles within their scope. Under the current law, employers with 25 (or fewer) employees were exempt from the rules and roles with a fixed monthly salary of $12,000 SGD per month and above were exempt.  The new position now allows employers with 10 or more employees to be covered.  Roles that pay a fixed monthly salary below $15,000 SGD will have to be advertised for a minimum duration of 14 days.
