  2. Employment Law in Singapore - Cases and Materials

    Employment has been an area of especial focus in Singapore even before her independence, given its extensive impact on the general population. Various employment legislation enacted since the founding of Singapore sought to deal with pertinent issues of the time, be it the influx of immigrants in the 19th century, the industrial unrests in the 1950s, or the economic restructuring in the 1980s. Employment Law in Singapore – Cases and Materials consolidates and traces the development of the various legislation which regulate employment practices in Singapore (including the Employment Act, the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act, the Employment Agencies Act, the Work Injury Compensation Act, the Workplace Safety and Health Act and the Foreign Employee Dormitories Act 2015) which as a whole seeks to strike a delicate balance between the competing needs of the various stakeholders such as workers, employers, employment agencies, insurers, and the general public. Cases featured in this book include not only those pertaining to employment offences, but also administrative infringements and work injury compensation. It will serve as a useful handbook to practitioners and persons interested in the regulatory aspect of employment law in Singapore.

  4. 	International Issues in Family Law In Singapore

    The “globalisation” of families has raised complex legal issues affecting family life, marriage and divorce. Yet there are relatively few local decisions in Singapore on the private international law aspects of family law. This book discusses conflict of laws rules applicable in family cases in Singapore and relevant local cases that offer guidance on the issues addressed. It also examines substantive law on family issues that have international features. Not quite a book on the conflict of laws nor the traditional topics in family law, its chapters uniquely select family law issues that have international dimensions. It includes discourse on substantive law and the conflicts rules in the formation of marriages, regulation of the marital relationship, matrimonial proceedings terminating marriages in globalised families, the ensuing financial consequences, and the laws on parental abduction and relocation of children across jurisdictions.

    Data Protection in the Practical Context – Strategies and Techniques provides a detailed study of the law, practice and policy of personal data protection law in Singapore.
