Can we disclose employee’s details to other companies for Reference Check?

We are obliged to adhere to the PDPA Act. For this case, it depends.

If there is consent from the worker to release the details, then we can do that. Else, we are not suppose to release the details to other companies if there is no consent from the worker.


My Foreign Worker has resigned. When must I cancel his/her pass?

E.g. A work permit holder’s last day is on the 17 Jul (Monday). Should you cancel the pass on that day itself, or on the 18 Jul (Tues)?

As per MOM, we should cancel on the next day. We are not suppose to cancel on that day itself. Levy will also be charged till 17 Jul.

Such applies for other passes as well, e.g. S-Pass.
