As an employer, I find it ridiculous that I have to pay for foreign worker (those on Work Permit) insurance mandated by MOM.
Foreign worker changes and hops on different companies as frequent as they can trying to clinch who pays them better or for whatever reasons they may have for quiting.
I would strongly recommended to MOM that these foreign workers from Malaysia should have a portable insurance paid by them. It will benefit them and give them a sense of personal responsibility to their own health while in Singapore.
At the present, most foreign workers dont care about the cost incurred for their insurance that is being paid for by the company, thus, they can quit any time but employer has to foot the bill for every foreign workers.
Please help to lower the operating cost of SME.
