Employers of Certain Foreign Workers to Report Worker Health Conditions and Contact Details Immediately

March 26, 2020 | Singapore

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) is increasing the monitoring of foreign work pass holders who entered Singapore between March 14 and 20, 2020 and were not issued a Stay-Home Notice.

Employers that have foreign workers who entered Singapore between March 14 and 20, 2020 and were not issued a Stay-Home-Notice should monitor these workers’ health for 14 days. This includes taking their temperature twice daily. From March 26 until April 3, 2020, employers must submit a daily health declaration for all such workers to MOM using this form.

Employers that have foreign work pass holders who entered Singapore between March 14 and 20, 2020 (including work pass holders affected by Malaysia’s Movement Control Order who are currently staying in Singapore) are also required to report the mobile numbers of these workers through this form by March 26, 2020. Employers are to ensure that the mobile number provided is a Singapore phone number. Periodically, MOM will be checking on the workers’ whereabouts. The workers will receive an SMS and they are required to respond. Failure to do so will result in enforcement action being taken against the employer and worker.
