SINGAPORE — About 190 employers were taken to task every year between 2015 and 2019 for underpaying their foreign employees — more than triple the yearly average in the previous five years — Manpower Minister Josephine Teo said on Tuesday (Feb 2).
Sixty employers were dealt with, on average, each year between 2010 and 2014, Mrs Teo said in a written parliamentary reply to questions from Mr Faisal Manap, Member of Parliament (MP) for Aljunied Group Representation Constituency, and Non-Constituency MP Leong Mun Wai.
