The WFL is a significant milestone towards building a fairer and more harmonious workplace, thus sending a strong signal that workplace discrimination in Singapore will not be tolerated. To provide guidance on the new WFL, Guest-of-Honour, Minister of State for Manpower Ms Gan Siow Huang, will be joining us in this panel discussion.
