Higher Salary Thresholds For Employment And S Pass Holders: Changes take effect 1 July 2011, salary threshold fo...

Employers of existing Employment Pass and S Pass holders will have a one-time renewal of up to 2 years to meet the new salary thresholds. From 1 July 2011, MOM will also raise the threshold salary for part-time employment to S$850 – instead of S$650 now. Local workers earning below this threshold salary are deemed to be working part-time. This change is to ensure that local workers are hired meaningfully, instead of being employed on a token salary so that the company can get access to foreign workers, MOM said. Under Singapore’s Dependency Ratio framework, a company needs to fulfil a requisite number of full-time local workers to qualify to hire foreign workers. About 53,000 foreigners were added to Singapore's workforce last year.
