Note: If you have details of your outstanding salary claim, including the amount, you can submit your mediation request online with your Singpass. The next step will be a dispute resolution session at TADM.

Do take note of the time limit(s) to file your claim(s). If you have general queries on the Employment Act, please contact the Ministry of Manpower.

From 11 Apr 2021, businesses will be required to use Singpass instead of Corppass when logging in to our eServices. Visit Corppass for more info.

(For employers) File a notice-pay claim for mediation

If you wish to recover notice pay from a former employee, first try to resolve the issue with them directly. If it cannot be resolved, use this service to file your claim for mediation.

Things to note

Who can file Company’s Corppass user.
Registration fees for mediation
  • $10 if you are claiming $10,000 or less
  • $20 if your claim exceeds $10,000

Fees are not refundable and are based on the claim amount declared when you file.

Payment methods

You can pay by:

  • Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards.
  • eNETS via internet banking from DBS, UOB, OCBC or Standard Chartered Bank.

Payment must be made within 3 days from the date you filed your claim for it to be deemed successful.

How long it takes

Within 3 working days of payment, you will receive an email from TADM on the next steps of the dispute resolution process.

Employers can only claim for notice pay (also known as ‘salary in lieu of notice’). The employee must be covered under the Employment Act for you to claim.

You need to file within 6 months of the employee’s last day of employment.

You should first attempt to recover the notice pay from your former employee. For example, by sending them a letter to recover the payment.

Give them a reasonable period to respond. If there is no response, you may then file your claim for mediation.
