Through advisory and mediation services, we help employees and employers manage employment disputes, or self-employed persons manage payment-related disputes, amicably.
Who we are
The Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM) is jointly set up by the tripartite partners: the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF).

Our key services
We offer advisory and mediation services.
We provide mediation for:
- Salary-related claims. These are claims arising when a party breaches an agreement in an employment contract or under employment laws. These claims must first be mediated before they can be heard by the Employment Claims Tribunals.
- Dismissal appeals under the Employment Act , Retirement and Re-employment Actand Child Development Co-Savings Act referred by the Ministry of Manpower.
For other types of employment disputes, or payment-related disputes for self-employed persons, we may offer mediation where appropriate.
Advisory services for employees and self-employed persons
We offer advisory services only for employees and self-employed persons. We will explain the options available for managing an employment dispute. Depending on the case, we may recommend other partners who can help you.
Note: Employers may consider using the Employer Advisory Servicesat the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) to get advice.
We work with partners to provide options to help employees and self-employed persons more holistically based on their needs.
