Singaporean Firms Commit to Rehiring Retired Workers

Beginning 2012, the Singaporean government will enforce a law that requires companies to rehire workers who turn 62 years old, reports the Straits Times.

 

The Times notes that companies under the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) have already committed themselves to re-hiring senior citizens who must first meet performance and medical fitness standards. As of July 31, 957 of the 1000 unionised companies have rehired a total of 9,413 older employees.
