SUPPORT & SHARING
Tripartite Guidelines on the
Re-Employment of Older Employees
The latest tripartite guidelines on the Re-Employment of older employees were released on 11 January 2011. As part of its efforts to help older employees remain economically productive, the Government will enact Re-Employment legislation by 2012 to enable more people to continue working beyond the statutory minimum retirement age of 62, up to 65 in the first instance and, later, up to 67.
This change, accompanied by increased Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) for older, low-wage workers, will complement the CPF Minimum Sum Draw-Down-Age (DDA), which will progressively be raised from 2012.
In the latest efforts to raise awareness on Re-Employment, the PREPARE Community will be launching an above-the-line campaign from April 2011 onwards. Supported by the programme partners, a series of advertisements will be published in the Straits Times and ZaoBao.
A key feature of the advertisements will be to showcase the testimonials by companies that have attended and successfully achieved the full deliverables.These exemplary companies are the early adopters that have taken the first steps towards implementing a sustainable Re-Employment system.
Reaching out to Companies
Our Unsung Heroes
PREPARE Community would like to specially highlight the commitment displayed by our special team of outreach personnel. Lead and managed strategically by our PREPARE secretariat, these dedicated part timers are required to brave constant rejections on the ground,endure phone slamming and overcome the difficulties of relating Re-employment message to SMESs.
Comprising primarily of students with little work experience (and low take home pay), these team have shown great resolves in their work and have contributed to the continuous engagement of companies on Re-employment issues. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the current team and those who have left to further their studies. Well done guys and gals!
