Protection of Employees for Jobs Support Scheme

01 Nov 2021
Parliamentary Question by Mr Zhulkarnain Abdul Rahim:

To ask the Minister for Finance what are the steps undertaken to (i) prevent back flow of salary payment from the employee to the employer under the Jobs Support Scheme and (ii) provide a safe and whistleblowing mechanism by employees to report such cases.

Parliamentary Reply by Minister for Finance, Mr Lawrence Wong:

Payouts under the Jobs Support Scheme are based on data on CPF contributions and wages. The CPF Board audits employers to check the accuracy of CPF contributions paid and wages declared. The CPF Board is also piloting the CPF Contribution Alert which allows employees to receive personalised notifications when their monthly CPF contributions are credited. Employees can conveniently verify the wages declared by their employers and CPF contributions paid by their employers against their payslip. Employees and whistleblowers can lodge reports to the CPF Board for any non-compliance of CPF contributions.
