The Singapore Industrial & Services Employees Union sought an order from the Court that
First Defense Services Pte Ltd be directed to pay its employees an annual salary increment of
5% with effect from 1 Jul 2011, or alternatively a one-off lump sum equal to 1 month's salary.
The company claimed that it was not in a financial position to give an increment.
The Singapore Catering Services, Staffs & Workers Trade Union appealed against the Referee’s decision on the dispute
relating to termination of service and reimbursement of medical expenses of an ex-employee of Hollandse Club.
Not allowing the annual leave to be carried forward to the next year.
Under Section 43(6) of Employment Act, employees are allowed to carry
forward the annual leave that they have earned during 12 months of
continuous service for up to 12 months after the end of that period
