Cancellation of Employment Pass - Update 1 (Replies)
Hi Fellow HR Practitioners,
I would like to find out about the cancellation of Employment Pass. In the MOM website, it states to cancel the EP within 1 week from the last day of notice. Let's say last day of notice is on Fri, 27 Jul; when do I start counting the 1 week?
1 week starting 27 July 2018.
The website says within one week after last day notice. If last day is Fri, then EP should be cancelled between Sat to Fri.
It would depend on the work days of the employee if its an employee that work over the weekend then it start to count from the next day but i would advise that you start counting from official working days ie Monday and shouldn't exceed Friday 3rd of August.
You can cancel the pass 1 or 2 days before the last day of employment. MOM will give the employee one month visit pass from the date of your cancellation of the pass. So the employee will have enough time to settle all their personal matters before leaving Singapore.
For your example - last day of notice is Fri, 27 Jul, you need to cancel by Fri, 3rd August.
You can cancel it as the last formality on his Last Working Date. Or 1 week from Last Working Date.
Employment of Foreign Manpower Act
- 12 December 2018
It is vital that we are well acquainted with the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act (EFMA) and Employment of Foreign Manpower (Levy Order) to manage the foreign workforce and reduce potential conflicts between employers and employees. Our policies need to be compliant with the legal requirements to avoid being fined or curtailment of the Work Pass privilege.
