Who are the one's required to submit the notifications and when should we/they submit it and when is the supposed deadline?

    Employers who own a business that employes more than 10 employees and are planning to retract 5 employees should notify the Ministry of Manpower. especially when employees are given the retrenchment notice within any 6 month period. The notification must be submitted within 5 working days after your employee is notified about their retrenchment. Administrative penalties can be implied to fail to comply with the requirements on the mandatory retrenchment notification.
