SINGAPORE: The Manpower Ministry received an average of 100 pregnancy and maternity-related cases each year, since the Marriage and Parenthood package was enhanced in 2008. Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin revealed the figure in a written reply to Parliament. He said most cases involved disputes over the dismissal of a pregnant employee. Others relate to the denial of maternity leave entitlements. Of the cases lodged though, about one in four were withdrawn by the employees after merits of the case were assessed.

Yesterday, OPEC+ — the grouping of major oil producers — made public its plan to continue with its production cuts till April. It effectively means that if you are headed to the petrol pump, brace yourself to keep paying more for longer than you thought you would. In all likelihood, the move by OPEC+ would push retail fuel prices to new highs in yet more towns and cities in India, putting paid to the hope that Indian consumers may get some relief at last.
