Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA) joins Singapore in mourning the passing of the Republic’s Founding Father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Mr Lee was an outstanding lawyer and a distinguished leader, ahead of our times. Indeed, the nation has lost a great counsel and a man of great vision in the eyes of Singapore citizens and world leaders.

We share our deepest condolences with the Prime Minister, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, and his family during this time of personal and national grief.

Venue: Intellioffices, Level 3, 146 Robinson Road, Singapore 068909
Speaker: Ben Wootliff - General Manager, Control Risks (Hong Kong)

About this Seminar 

How do we protect against the unknown threats? The rise in cybercrime has seen the number of threat actors multiply, and the nature of attacks fragment; what does this mean for the alternatives industry and how can we protect ourselves and our businesses from becoming a victim of a rapidly evolving, amorphous threat?

Sony, JAL, Target: every week a major corporation is in the news as it falls victim to cyber-attacks. But behind the headlines is a complex set of threats, risks and vulnerabilities. With the nature, motivation and capability of attackers constantly changing, general counsels face a dynamic and unpredictable and deeply complex challenge.

Trade Union Representation for Professionals, Managers and Executives

Venue: Intellioffices, Level 3, 146 Robinson Road, Singapore 068909
Speaker: Mr. Joseph Liow - Director, Straits Law Practice LLC

About this Seminar

Most employers generally associate trade unions as representing ‘rank and file’ employees and form the view that a trade union has no role to play in respect of its professionals, managers and executives (“PME”) employees. This talk will explain the rationale and the law allowing trade unions to represent particular classes of PME employees; either collectively or for limited representations. This talk will cover the eligibility of PMEs, an employer’s right to reject on eligibility, MOUs with regards to PMEs that may be represented, recognition of unions, the specific types of disputes which unions may represent PME employees in, invitation to negotiate, conciliation, compulsory tripartite mediation under Part IVA of the Industrial Relations Act (Cap.136) and arbitration in the Industrial Arbitration Court under section 31 of the Industrial Relations Act.
