EAP - Employment Assistance Payment

"This will ensure that the payments do not impose undue burdens on employers or become an easy alternative to re-employing workers, he said. He was responding to a concern raised in Parliament by Member of Parliament Lee Bee Wah (Ang Mo Kio GRC) that the EAP may burden small and medium enterprises, and cause some to lay off their ageing workers to avoid the payouts. " - CNA Report.

No...I'm not going to criticise Lee Bee Wah for being pro-business or suggesting businesses will resort to unethical behavior.

If you haven't been following what is going on, as usual, here is a summary:

1. A increasing number of our workers are ageing - by 2030, 20% will reach > 65 years of age.
2. The govt is working on a set of guidelines to encourage employers to rehire workers who reach retirement age of 62 and have good performance and are healthy.
3. It has been suggested that 3 months before the employee is retired, a rehire plan should be offered to him.
4. If the company can't reemploy him and has to let him go, they should pay a sum of money to assist the retired worker - they are working on guidelines for this sum. This payout is known as Employment Assistance Payment (EAP).

Lee Bee Wah was saying that if there is compensation involved, companies may act unethically and layoff/sack workers before they retire to avoid this payout.

There are other fears:

But during an hour-long dialogue following his announcement, several union leaders voiced concerns that some companies might use the EAP as a way to get rid of older workers.
Labour chief Lim Swee Say, who was on the panel that includes Mr Gan and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) president Stephen Lee, allayed their fears by pledging that the labour movement would intervene in such cases.
He pointed to the labour movement's current focus on building a more inclusive workforce with a CBF (cheaper, better and faster) economy.[Link]


What the above paragraph is saying is once EAP is in place, companies who want to get rid of older retired workers can do it with a clear conscience since the govt stipulated an EAP amount.

Currently a set of draft guidelines has been released in Nov 2009 [Link]and this will form the core of the law to be passed by 2012 for re-employment up to age 65, and later, up to 67.

I've been following the development of these guidelines for some time and listening to some of the feedback and it really dawned on my how much working world has changed - from my father's time when he stepped into the workforce 45 years ago, the day I joined the work force and the young people entering the workforce today. My dad worked as a technician in various companies and had 3 jobs in life time - every job he took, the companies had pension plan for workers who stayed with the company for a decade or 2....the company would like to you to stay for as long as possible and would reward you for your loyalty as a worker. My dad is 70 years old today and his last job came with full pension and some medical benefits. Looking back at the day I joined the workforce more than 15 yrs ago, although the pension schemes of my father's time were gone, employers were expected to keep workers for long periods so there were generous compensations when they retrenched workers - one month pay for every year with the company.

In today's hire-and-fire world, more often than not, the young people joining the workforce are put on 1 year or 2 year contracts. They are easily laid off once projects are over and companies don't need them. Because of this hire and fire mentality, companies are reluctant to train staff. It was common during my time for IT professionals to spend the 1st year attending courses paid by the company. IBM in the early 90s spent 1 year to train each sales engineer because in those days they were expected to stay 5-10 years or even longer.Today, it is quite common for me to interview young people who had three jobs in 5 years and what sometimes impresses me is they paid for all the IT certification courses they attended out of their own pockets to improve their employability.

It is estimated that workers joining today's workforce with change jobs 10-14 times[Link]. I really wonder if loyality among workers still has any value. If a worker has a job and is heading towards his retirement,say in 2020, it is likely that he is on that job for less than 3 years. The retirement day is similar to an 'end of contract'. If the company needs him, they will keep him ...if the company doesn't, they pay a minimum compensation and let him go. The only difference the new set of guidelines makes is the company has to pay the aged worker a small sum to send him off to his retirement. Even then, as MP Lee Bee Wah mentioned companies can get unethical and avoid the payment.

IMHO, the real solution to all this is to have a tighter labour market. Companies keep older workers longer if it is not so easy to hire new younger workers easily. The guidelines the MoM is trying to push out will not be effective so long as they have a liberal foreign worker policy.

Looking at how working life and job stability has changed over the years, what is really the selling point of the PAP's CBF (cheaper, better, faster) system? Where are we racing towards? Struggle more for less...less job security, less benefits? We seem to be working harder than we did in the past not for a better life but a tougher less secure future. Work longer, work forever, work faster ..work cheaper...really what is the end goal of all this? What really is the selling point...and how are younger people expected to support such a system?!

Guidelines to state size of retirement payout Minimum and maximum sums for the Employment Assistance Payment will be stipulated.
Dawn Tay
Wed, Jan 13, 2010my paper


UPCOMING re-employment guidelines will include recommendations on how much companies need to pay their older workers who have hit retirement age, if the businesses no longer have jobs for them.
Minimum and maximum sums for the Employment Assistance Payment (EAP) will be stipulated, said Manpower Minister Gan Kim Yong yesterday.

This will ensure that the payments do not impose undue burdens on employers or become an easy alternative to re-employing workers, he said.
He was responding to a concern raised in Parliament by Member of Parliament Lee Bee Wah (Ang Mo Kio GRC) that the EAP may burden small and medium enterprises, and cause some to lay off their ageing workers to avoid the payouts. The EAP aims to tide such workers over the
period when they are looking for another job.
It is among proposals to facilitate the re-hiring of older workers which will form the core of a law to be passed by 2012 for the re-hiring of workers aged up to 65 and, subsequently, up to 67.

The need for EAP to be even legislated as law is already a failure of the S'pore economic story for whom it really matters --- its long-suffering citizens. What it says is that after 40 years of slogging in the workforce, the typical citizen still cannot have a decent retirement, still need to be re-employed, still need kuching-kura handout to tide over while trying to find another job at age 65+!! What a joke!

Vote For Change, Vote Opposition.

Agree with Lucky. Turning off the tap on indiscriminate inflow of foreigners and PRs will solve plenty of problems:
1. Unemployment and under-employment of citizens.
2. Depressing wages to even worse than 3rd-world standard on a price-parity basis.
3. Causing HDB flat prices to shoot to the stars, while real incomes have stagnated or even decreased.
4. Jam-packed overcrowding on the public transport.
5. Taking over limited places in public schools.
6. Siphoning off tens of millions of taxpayers' money e.g. integration fund, education subsidies, free scholarships.

Yo guys,

Listen to me. What lucky says is true. A tight labour market not only means you have to work harder. It means that you have difficulty accquiring useful skills, meaning that you become not as good as the foregin talents, meaning that we need to import more foreign talents. You know what? The foreigners (they have not become citizens or PRs) are complaining about SIngapore letting in too many foreginers. =)

The Veitnamese say there are too many chinese. The chinese say there are too many Indians. The Malyasians say there are too many of both.

Too strict will hinder foreign companies investing here.

The reason why foreign companies setup base here bcoz of low corruption cases and of coz, low paying, high skilled workers.

It is sad to see working standards drop to a low level where loyalty doesn't appreciated anymore.

These days itz all about profitability. Itz a pragmatic society we are living in.

Let me spaek for the guys in their 20-30s.

Look, after this election and probably for the follwing election, PAP will still be in power. What do you think are the chances of major change?

Change is likely to happen 10 years down the road, during which you are struggling to make a living. Correcting such major imbalances will create a maissive recesion and a lot of pain.

While it will benefit the future, how much buffer do you think u will have built up in thoes 10 painful years?

Therefore, if you dun want to be the next lost generation, get the hell out of here.

I know, we care about our people, about our country, by all means , vote against PAP, but the best way to help your friends and loved ones is to help them immigrate.

Do you think I am right Lucky? =)

Speak where it counts. If it is true, ask your opposition leaders to screw pap in parliament. Why? Scare?
Prove to the people the opposition can bring change through reasons and heart.
You only need one, only one who can talk sense and sway everyone like the old man.
If the opposition can't debate intelligently with the incumbents, what makes you think more opposition in parliament will bring changes?

Therefore, talk is cheaper, not necessarily better but certainly faster way to power and a fat paycheck to non changes.

Yep. You have asked the right question, "What is the end goal?". In the end it is the ordinary people and our young who will suffer while the MIW get away. Our esteem MIW are not solving the problems. They are creating more problems. I guess that what they are sacrifying and being paid for.

Thank you so much, our esteem MIW. You have create more suffering for the people.

What loyalty? Companies has none to their workers so workers has none to their companies. That's just the way it is nowadays.
As for the EAP, I'm not exactly sure how it is suppose to help Singaporeans. The scheme is more for companies than workers and if anythings, it's a scheme that looks very bad for Singaporean workers.

Anonymous said...

Just make sure 66% or more(doesn't matter old, young, new or what not citizen) are OK, whether got EAP, ERP, GST, CBF and what not.

And opposition still give 50% or more walkovers at elections.

Once this is fixed, everything will be OK.

The foreigners may be complaining but they are still coming. When they stop coming then we will know that things are really bad. At the rate things are going, it may just happen not too far in the future.

If life is tough for the average Singaporean, life is worse for the foreigners. As the employment condition deteriorates, the ones coming are more desperate and the whole vicious cycle starts all over again.

You Singkies complain too much. You have a really good govt, clean, able, efficient and careing, but you are never satisfied. You want only the easy and good jobs but do not want the difficult ones. You want good pay but cannot out perform the FTs. The FTs are willing to work harder for less. You want to work less for more. Who do you think employers will choose, you or the FTs?? PLease do not be so naive. If you want to be paid more then you have to be better than the FTs. If you cannot stand the competition then you deserve to be left out. No one is going to give you any preference just because you are Singaporeans. In this modern workplace only the capable, willing and hungry will get the prize. If you think that just because you were born here in Singapore gives you the right to be lazy, think again. Keep up the bitching and whinging and you will fall behind even further. MM was right when he said the you are less hard-striving and hard-driving and you have not had a spur stuck up your hide. Well said. Wake up Singkies, the world does not owe you a living, you must work for it.

Many S'poreans are faster, better, cheaper when they work in Ang-Mor land. I know because I am one.

But do you see them let in a flood of faster, better, cheaper S'poreans? They don't. They need to screen till they can't find a local before hiring overseas.

Of course the 3rd world worker is cheaper and sometimes faster and better. (Face the facts, we do have many lethargic S'poreans around).

The difference is, we do not screen but indiscriminately let in the flood. We do not differentiate between real FT, bluff FT, bullshit FT and wayang FT.

" The difference is, we do not screen but indiscriminately let in the flood. We do not differentiate between real FT, bluff FT, bullshit FT and wayang FT."

Any FT in Singapore is value for money. Why? Because they are cheaper. Employers prefer them because of the bottom line. A FT will not take MC, while a Singkie is always a Sickie, An average Singkie workers will have an average of 4 days MC a year. They want big bonus at the end of the year. Further more a FT usually produces more output than a Singkie worker. No contest.

Eh, I think you are taking things too seriously. Previously another anon (was it you?) said that we are only talking about "personal" grievances only what, nothing more than kopitiam chit-chatting.

If only a few people are unhappy with current government policies, then all this talk won't have any effect - no need to be so flustered.

If there are many, many people who are unhappy, talking here also won't have much effect, because in that case change will be inevitable. Nothing that you or I can say will be able to stop it from happening.

So just relax and spend more time having a good lunch, OK?

Maybe not enough or talented manpower or enough time at ground level to screen those FTs. That's why.

Of if really screen strictly, not enough will pass and come here. Like this also no good. So quantity 1st, quality 2nd. No choice.

THat day will never come because Singaporeans can only bitch in cberspace. When a carrot is dangle in front of them and the promise of lift upgrading, just before GE they will very obbediently vote in the PAP. LIft upgrade means their flats will be worth more, more money makes them feel richer. And there is no better encouragement to a money face Singaporean than to make him feel richer. Singaporeans are so obsessed by money they will even sell their freedom and liberty for a few dollars more.

I honestly think there isn't any alternative govt for Singapore. PAP is the best for this country. If a freak GE result put another party in charge, all our reserves will be depleted in 5 years and all the GOOD work of the last 45 years will go down the drain. Maybe our women folks will become maids in other countries. So, please do not waste your vote, vote PAP.

Lim Leng Hiong said...

Anon 14/1/10 15:02, no need for such an extreme view; I'm sure some Singaporeans can be very short-sighted but there are also many, many Singaporeans who plan ahead.

For example, consider these two purely imaginary scenarios:

1. Another tropical island nation also tries to boost its GDP through a massive influx of foreign workers. Over time, more and more of them settle down to become citizens.

The leaders believe that change will NEVER come because citizens "can only bitch in cyberspace", but they forgot where their new citizens came from. As the proportion of foreign-born citizens increase rapidly, the leaders are not worried because the GDP is doing fine.

2. A person is tasked to patrol online blogs and post comments to "correct" the opinions of readers who are unhappy with government policies.

He is ordered to do this relentlessly - cannot rest during lunch and not even at 2 am in the morning.

However, his supervisors did not inform him that the number of unhappy people have reached a historic level, and anyway they have already been planning for a change of leadership.

When change comes, the new leaders visit the person's workplace and ask him: "What was your job?"

His supervisors quickly interjected.

"He did it during his own personal time. We have nothing to do with it."

Well, I think I will agree with you on this, because when another party forms the next govt, it will most likely find that our reserves are mostly gone (since pap is not telling us how much reserves we have left)...

So, the new govt probably won't even have the chance to "deplete" our reserves..

But I am hoping that the new govt can maybe "confiscate" some elites' wealth/assets, and at least singaporeans can get back their cpf $..

I think PAP would have done better in this area than I believe the opposition could. Ho Ching can lose so much money in the span of 2 years that i begin to doubt the opposition will have the chance to even see the money when they take over.

so, don't need to give the opposition 5 years, PAP 2 years can alr! PAP Boleh! =)

Logic is simple lah. Plz lah, PAP sure win the next election. The difference is whether you want to see them win with 67% or with 51%? If you give them 67% confirm they will frak you and increase their pay to 20X Obama's, tell you to CBF and ask you to become maid to their pet PRs and new citizens, tell you don't be choosy and go buy 2-rm flat in Tuas, and tell you to send your worthless parents to JB or Batam.

Even if got freak election result still no worries what. The famiLEE already said they will send out the SAF to sort things out. KNN better don't mobilise me that's all. Can use FT and PR as target practice or not?

I'll simply fire the workers when they're reaching 40 yrs old. Since there are no workers above 40, I can't fire anyone who's in their 60s!

When I was having attachment 12 years ago, the company do not mind taking fresh graduate and training them.

Now, they do not want to train rookies and took in workers from China, Malaysia and India who may not be as good as singaporean.

The only advantage is most come with post graduate or few years on working experience in their home country.

Our youth has nowhere to start, and this effect is going to carry forward over their entire life.

PAP has screwed all our young people.

Just-In-Time workforce is becoming more prevalent as companies shed costs.

As for paper certs in IT, i have come across indians with unknown certs being hired (saw them photocoping their certs). They still hired cause mainly cheap. IT industry is tough, people pay to study for their IT certifications just to land a job. Little to no company sponsorships.

Is a struggle cause need to pay & upgrade again after few years. How to recoup investment & time like that? How to better standard of living when salary/raises go into replacing those 'certs' just to be relevant?

1 ought to build up reserves & avoid unnecessary liabilities such as cars while young before ageism hits in the 40+ age range.

All things being equal I will still hire a foreigner over a Singaporean. Singaporeans don't give me a good impression. Our esteemed leaders MM Lee, PM Lee, and all the various ministers have already said that foreign talent is better. Thus if you have foreign talent, it gives a better image and easier to do business with government and other companies.

Many people do not know that our so called first class ministers who have repeatedly claimed that they are sacrificing the potential huge salary in the public sector to serve the nation are in fact shrewd enough to retain the pension system for themselves but not for the people. Those in parliament who are above 55 are enjoying both a million dollar salary plus pension. This is what we call moral authority to lead. One rule for us and another for the poor people. Leadership my example.

BTW, I do not think a HR manager from HP would earn as much as a Minister, even if he made CEO which is unlikely given his competency.

Anonymous said...

I thought the million dollar salary that we pay our ministers is to reward them for transforming our nation's comparative advantage from being cheap labour to high tech value added skilled jobs. They are supposed to attract foreign companies to our shores because we can differentiate ourselves from the other Asian economies, be it China, India, HK, Taiwan, South Korea, ASEAN, etc.

Now we have be be CBF means that their education and economic policies have not produced the desired result. If the people's lives are not better, do the ministers still deserve their million dollar salaries?

If we are competing only on price, we are dead meat because it will be a long way to go before we hit the wage levels of China or India or Vietnam. Is that where we are heading?
