The Ministry of Manpower has issued a reminder to all employers and work pass holders to comply with circuit breaker measures, Stay-Home Notices (SHN), and Quarantine Orders (QO).

Key Points:

  • Between May 1 and June 25, MOM revoked the work passes of 140 work pass holders for having breached circuit breaker measures, SHN or QO. In addition to having their work passes revoked, these individuals are now permanently banned from working in Singapore.
  • Employers and work pass holders have a joint responsibility to ensure workers abide by social distancing measures, and, if applicable, Quarantine Orders and SHN.

Background: MOM has announced that it will continue to take action against work pass holders who do not comply with requirements, which may include the revocation of work passes, regardless of work pass holder nationality and pass type.
