New Rules on Flexi-Work Requests in Singapore

New Rules on Flexi-Work Requests in Singapore
  1. New rules require employers to consider flexible work requests seriously, aiming to attract and retain workers who might otherwise not work
  2. The Tripartite Guidelines on Flexible Work Arrangement Requests define flexi-work broadly into flexi-place, flexi-time, and flexi-load arrangements.
  3. Flexi-place allows remote work, like telecommuting, which has gained popularity during the pandemic, offering benefits like increased productivity but requiring caution regarding tax and immigration regulations.
  4. Flexi-time includes flexi-shift, flexi-hours, staggered working hours, and compressed work schedules, providing flexibility in work hours and structure to accommodate various personal and professional commitments.
  5. Under flexi-hours, employees can request to work at any time of the day, as long as they complete the stipulated hours within the work week.
  6. An employee who works longer hours over fewer days for the same pay and more rest days a week can be said to be on a compressed work schedule.
  7. Flexi-load arrangements involve part-time work and job sharing, enabling employees to work reduced hours or share responsibilities with others.
  8. People on flexi-load arrangements generally take up different workloads, with pay adjusted to match.
