A person who is dissatisfied with an Order made by an Assistant Registrar or Deputy Registrar (the "Registrar") at a Case Management Conference may file an appeal against the Order.

 

The person appealing the Order will be known as the "Appellant", and the other person will be known as the "Respondent". The terms "party" and "parties" are also used to refer in general to the person(s) involved in the case.

 

Step 1

Consider if there are any grounds to appeal against the Order of the Registrar.

 

Step 2

File a Notice of Appeal to Tribunal from Order of Registrar at the Employment Claims Registry, located at the Community Justice and Tribunals Division at Level 1 of the State Courts building, 1 Havelock Square, Singapore 059724.

 

The Notice must be filed within 7 working days after the date on which the Order that is being appealed against was made. E.g. If the Order is made on 3 April 2017, the last day an Appellant must file and serve the Notice is on 12 April 2017. If the last day of the period is a Saturday, Sunday or a Public Holiday, the Notice may be filed on the next working day.

 

Things to bring:

  • Personal identification documents
  • (for Singapore citizen or Permanent Resident) ­– NRIC
  • (for foreign citizen) ­– Passport and Employment Pass
  • (for non-individuals, e.g., companies, etc.) ­– Latest company profile and identification documents of the company's authorised representative, including a letter of authorisation from the company
  • One (1) original set and two (2) duplicate sets of the Notice of Appeal
  • Filing fee (S$100)

 

Step 3

The Appellant must serve the Notice of Appeal on every party to the proceedings, to inform them to attend before the ECT on a specified date and time. The Appellant must serve the Notice within 7 working days from the date he filed the Notice of Appeal.

 

E.g. If the Notice is filed on 3 April 2017, the last day the Notice must be served on every party to the proceedings is on 12 April 2017. If the last day of the period is a Saturday, Sunday or a Public Holiday, the Notice may be served on the next working day. The Notice of Appeal may be served by: 

Hand
  • (For individuals) Delivering the documents to the other party at his last known place of residence
  • (For non-individuals, e.g., companies) Delivering the documents to any director, manager or officer of the other party at its registered office, or principal place of business
Registered post
  • (For individuals) Sending the documents by registered post to the other party's last known place of residence or business in an envelope addressed to the person
  • (For non-individuals, e.g., companies) Sending the documents by registered post to the other party's registered office or principal place of business
Others
  • By any means (including by facsimile transmission or electronic mail) as directed by the ECT

 

 

Step 4

A Notice of Hearing will be issued to the Appellant and Respondent to attend a Hearing at the ECT on a specified date and time. Both parties must attend the Hearing.

 

Step 5

At the Hearing, the Tribunal may, among other things:

 

(a)    Dismiss the appeal and uphold the Registrar's Order

 

(b)    Allow the appeal and make an Order as it deems fit

 

The Employment Claims Registry will prepare the Order and give a copy of the Order to the Appellant and Respondent.
