Written answers (Question to Enterprise)

The Labour Court held a hearing with all interested parties on a proposal submitted to it by the Security Industry Joint Labour Committee (JLC) on 18 January 2021.

The Labour Court shall consider the matter pursuant to section 42B (12) of the IR Act 1946. The Labour Court may, as it thinks proper, adopt the proposal, amend the proposal, or refuse to adopt the proposal.

Should the Labour Court adopt the proposal, it shall submit it to the Minister for his consideration. It is then a matter for the Minister, should he be satisfied that the required legal steps have been adhered to and considers it appropriate to do so, to make an order - known as an Employment Regulation Order - giving statutory effect to such proposal.
