Singaporean Employer Fined S$12,000 For Defaulting On Foreign Maid's Salary
SINGAPORE, July 16 (Bernama) -- A 51-year-old Singaporean employer, Razalee Rasdi, was fined S$12,000 (RM30,832) after he was convicted in the State Courts on Tuesday of failing to pay salaries amounting to S$7,450.40 (RM19,142) to his foreign domestic worker (FDW), as required under the Work Permit Conditions.
In a statement Wednesday, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) said Razalee also did not maintain a proper salary payment record to document the monthly salaries paid to his FDW.
He was further convicted of illegal employment, as he continued to employ his FDW after the Work Permit was revoked by MOM due to levy default.
In total, Razalee faced 23 charges under the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act (EFMA) (Chapter 91A).
Razalee was fined a total of S$12,000 (in default 105 days' imprisonment) by the Court. MOM has also barred him from hiring FDWs.

|On 8 August 1967, five leaders - the Foreign Ministers of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand - sat down together in the main hall of the Department of Foreign Affairs building in Bangkok, Thailand and signed a document. By virtue of that document, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was born. The five Foreign Ministers who signed it - Adam Malik of Indonesia, Narciso R. Ramos of the Philippines, Tun Abdul Razak of Malaysia, S. Rajaratnam of Singapore, and Thanat Khoman of Thailand - would subsequently be hailed as the Founding Fathers of probably the most successful inter-governmental organization in the developing world today.
