Work pass holder dependents
Dear HR Community,
We have a work pass holder who wishes to bring his parents to Singapore from his home country.
Do we, the company have to bear the cost of their travel expenses etc.
I always thought that it was the employee who should bear these expenses.
Does anyone have any policy on the dependents of work pass holders in their company or how you handle such requests from your staff?
REPLIES & COMMENTS
There is no obligation to provide support beyond your company's contract, policy or decision with him.
The only support you need to provide is endorsing the dependant’s pass if he wishes to bring them over.
The company does not need to bear any expenses related to work pass holder dependents.
