There are some adjustments to the coverage of the Employment Act, which takes effect on 1 April 2014:
- persons employed in managerial and executive positions earning a basic monthly salary not exceeding $4,500 will be covered under the Employment Act, except for the provisions in Part IV.
- non-workmen employees earning a basic monthly salary not exceeding $2,500 will be covered under Part IV of the Employment Act.
- the salary threshold for non-workmen who are eligible for OT claims is raised from $2,000 to $2,500 per month. However, the OT payable is capped at a salary level of $2,250 per month.
Part IV of the Employment Act covers hours of work, rest days, and other conditions of service.
