SECA recently held a legal clinic on Insights to Claims of Sharing The Burden of Increased Labour Costs on 24th September 2021.
Singapore’s construction industry continues to face tough challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with labour and material costs spiralling due to supply shortages and various restrictions and fellow SECA members too have been badly affected.
With this in mind, the talk shared aspects of the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) Act (“COTMA”), mainly focusing on art 2 for extension of time and Part 10A for relief for the increase in foreign manpower salary. The government has come out with various relief and assistance measures, and companies will still need to know what actions to take to utilise them.
In the talk, the notable deadlines shared included –
– For Part 2 – to serve notice by 30th Sep 2021, and
– For Part 10A – Deadline to Apply to Assessor (non-SOPA) relief by 14 Oct 2021
Team SECA would like to thank all 63 participants for making this clinic lively and Mr Eric Ng of Malkin & Maxwell LLP for taking time off his busy schedule to hold this clinic.
Members, if you have any queries on this matter, please approach Eric on this.
