The new world of work in Singapore

As a result of COVID-19 and measures put in place in response to the pandemic, countries around the world – including Singapore – have adopted new innovations in the area of employment in a bid to keep their workers safe and productive. One such innovation is work from home.

Now, a year after the pandemic began, home-office remote work has proven so effective, many believe it will become a fixture of our post-pandemic future. But remote work raises a host of legal and administrative challenges. This article – based on the 9 March 2021 webinar The Future is Now: The New World of Work in Singapore and hosted by employment law experts Lakshanthi Fernando and Wei Ming Tan from CMS Holborn Asia – explores the impact of homeworking in Singapore for both workers and companies. Read the article, listen to the podcast and watch webinar recording on this topic below.
