Dependent pass change
Dear HR Community Subscribers,
We are in the digital analytics industry and have many foreigners working for us.
And with effect from 1 May, the status of those foreigners who are employed with a dependent pass will change and they will require a work pass to continue their employment.
As a result, we wish to know how you are handling the affected staff like communicating with those who will be let go.
Thank you for all the help and replies.

I did enquire with the authorities. And their reply was: only apply for their work pass when their LOC is expiring. - Elsie
The DP holder will have another 1 year to go, The message has been already communicated though. If the company is having a quota requirement by then (2022), the company might apply for a work pass. - Nirosha
Currently, none of our employees are dependant pass holders. - AM
Just apply for a work pass (WP) in due course. - Anne
We don't have this category of workers. - Rina
