(For employees) File a claim for mediation

If you are a non-union employee, you may use this service to file a claim for mediation. If you are a union employee, you should contact your union to help you file your claim.

Things to note

File a salary in lieu of notice claim if you do not dispute your dismissal

If you have not been paid salary in lieu of notice (e.g. notice pay) and you do not dispute the grounds of your dismissal, you can file a salary-related claim.

If you are filing for both salary-related and wrongful dismissal claims

You need to file the two claims separately. For example, if your employer has wrongfully dismissed you and owes you your salary, you must log out from SingPass after filing your wrongful dismissal claim. You must log back in to SingPass to file your salary-related claim.

If your company is under bankruptcy, judicial management or liquidation

You cannot file the claim with us. You should file your claim directly with the Insolvency Office or the appointed judicial manager or liquidator.

Please refer to the Judicial Management Guide for more details. If you are unsure, you may make an appointment for advice.
