HR compliance: Mitigating risks and navigating challenges

In these times of constant change, global economic uncertainty and digital disruption, effective risk management and legal compliance are increasingly important considerations for all businesses. HR must take the lead to proactively manage change that can impact regulatory compliance risk for their function and the organisation as a whole.

To do this well, HR leaders must keep abreast of employment laws and policy updates and be aware of the implications of externalities that might affect their companies’ regulatory compliance risks.

Regulators are increasingly carrying out audit activities to assist employers to review their various compliance responsibilities. Generally when an audit is carried out, penalties and fines may be imposed and even prosecution of the responsible officers where lapses are found. Employers who volunteer to remediate the errors prior to any audit activities can have potential penalties reduced.


  • Recent regulatory changes, updates and guidelines – employers should keep abreast of updates and changes to avoid non-compliance resulting in penalties. We will discuss policy changes that have resulted in these regulatory updates, as well as the overall impact on private sector employers.
  • Audits by the Ministry of Manpower, Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore, Central Provident Fund Board – what triggers these audits and how should you handle them? More importantly, how can you mitigate your risks?
  • Personal Data Protection Act – with more scrutiny on employers’ compliance, what do employers need to know?
  • The "gig" economy – what are the regulatory considerations and inherent risks?
  • Effective payroll administration – what are considerations for in-house versus outsourced vendors?
  • Panel discussion and Q&A
