Redundancy Insurance: The Workers’ Party’s proposal for a resilient 21st century workforce

The Workers’ Party proposes a Redundancy Insurance scheme to ease the financial pressure on workers who are made redundant, to provide them with a longer runway to find suitable re-employment and to minimise the toll of unemployment on the health and well-being of their families. Under the scheme, employers and employees will contribute a combined 0.1% of monthly salary, and workers will receive a modest payout should they be made redundant.

The Workers’ Party’s Position Paper on the Constitution of Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bill 2016

WP proposes that reverting to the Ceremonial Presidency and establishing an Elected Senate to fulfill the custodial role is the solution.

The proposed constitutional amendments are major changes that should not be made with indecent haste and should be put to a referendum.
