like most of you might have already expected , they refused to write in for an LOC for me .

Had two more interviews , two more selections and job offers and then the same LOC , impasse

Its been more than 6 months after I have landed in Singapore, Is there any way at all for a dependent pass holder to find a job in Singapore ?


I don't get it at all! Maybe you should carry a copy of the LoC form and explain to your employer that all they need to do is FILL it, sign it, stamp it, whatever and submit with a copy of your Appointment letter. It should get approved in a couple of days. That's it.

I am on DP and my employer was aware of the LOC thing. But from your post and that of others, I realise that a lot of employers are not. In which case, it falls on you to "educate" them!
For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.

You need to show them the employment contract for part time workers, less than 35 hrs a week,

Contract of ServiceA part-time employee's contract of service must specify his/her:

•Hourly basic rate of pay1;
•Number of working hours for one day or one week;
•Number of working days for one week or one month; and
•Hourly gross rate of pay2, with the description and amount of each allowance payable separately itemised.
The ‘Basic rate of pay', as defined in the Employment Act, includes wage adjustments and increments but excludes allowances however described.

The ‘Gross rate of pay', as defined in the Employment Act, includes all allowances except:

•Overtime/bonus payments;
•Annual wage supplements;
•Reimbursements for special expenses;
•Productivity incentive payments; and
•Travelling, food and housing allowances.

Post the link to them

I guess if they do not follow through its because they cannot guarantee you many hrs a week, if you can agree on say 5 hrs a week or less, the rest can be paid as overtime. They are concerned because you do come under the employment act, which they probably see as a threat, All they need to do is to commit for 1 hr a week the rest can come as required.
