POLICY STUDY ON STANDARD WORKING HOURS

The report, executive summary and overview of the policy study on SWH are given below:

Working hours policy is a highly complex and contentious subject which involves a myriad of interrelated social and economic issues. Given the widespread and far-reaching implications that it will bring to our labour market and economy, it is necessary for the community to examine and discuss these issues thoroughly before coming to a view on the matter.

The Government has set up the Standard Working Hours Committee comprising members drawn from the labour sector, business sector, academia, community and government which serves as a good platform to follow up on the policy study on SWH and to gauge the views of the community.
