SEAChange Issue III: February 2022

Our third issue focuses on significant developments in Singapore, cutting across corporate governance, dispute resolution and employment issues.

We also look at stronger steps being taken in China to enhance whistleblower frameworks by (amongst other things) incentivizing the reporting of misconduct. These changes are consistent with changes we are seeing in other Asian jurisdictions.

Our articles look at: 

  • China’s Interim Measures for Rewards for Whistleblower Reports of Major Violations in the Field of Market Regulation and what it means for corporates and their compliance systems in China;
  • Conditional fee arrangements, and how Singapore’s latest law permitting these arrangements will continue to strengthen its position as a leading disputes hub;
  • Proposed legislation in Singapore, expected to be tabled in 2022, that will give greater bite to existing workplace discrimination guidelines; and
  • Guidelines issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore that will heighten corporate governance standards expected of financial institutions.
