王心妍女士询问了人力部长:

(a)人力部是否计划将残障界代表或新加坡协助残障者自立局(SG Enable)纳入职场公平劳资政委员会(Tripartite Committee on Workplace Fairness,简称TCWF);

(b)如果不是,将采取什么措施确保残障人士的声音得到充分代表以确保工作场所公平。

许宝琨医生(代表人力部长):工作场所公平三方委员会已于2023年8月完成了其工作并发布了最终建议。我想向议员保证,该委员会已广泛征求意见,包括新加坡协助残障者自立局和各种代表残疾人士社群的团体。

委员会考虑了反馈意见,建议禁止工作场所对残疾人的歧视,并支持愿意雇佣残疾人士的雇主。委员会还建议发布三方咨询意见,关于提供合理的配套措施,即调整工作或工作环境,使残疾员工能够胜任工作。三方合作伙伴在制定此咨询意见时将继续与各种社群团体和新加坡协助残障者自立局进行互动。

以下是英文质询内容:

Miss Rachel Ong asked the Minister for Manpower (a) whether the Ministry plans to include representatives from the disability sector or SG Enable in the Tripartite Committee on Workplace Fairness; and (b) if not, what will be done to ensure that the voices of persons with disabilities are adequately represented in ensuring workplace fairness.

The Senior Minister of State for Manpower (Dr Koh Poh Koon) (for the Minister for Manpower): The Tripartite Committee on Workplace Fairness has completed its work and issued its final recommendations in August 2023. I want to assure the Member that the Committee had consulted widely, including with SG Enable and various community groups representing persons with disabilities.

The Committee took into account the feedback and recommended prohibiting workplace discrimination on the basis of disability and supporting employers who wish to hire persons with disabilities. The Committee also recommended issuing a Tripartite Advisory on providing reasonable accommodations, which are adjustments to the job or the work environment that make it possible for employees with disabilities to perform their jobs. The tripartite partners will continue to engage the various community groups and SG Enable when developing this advisory.
