Part-time Employment in Singapore

A part-time employee is one who is required to work for only less than 35 hours a week. Part-time employees (except managers, executives, domestic workers and seamen) are also covered under the Employment Act.

A part-time employee's contract of service must specify his/her:
  • Hourly basic rate of pay;
  • Number of working hours for one day or one week;
  • Number of working days for one week or one month; and
  • Hourly gross rate of pay, with the description and amount of each allowance payable separately itemised.
Part-time employees are entitled to one rest day per week if he/she is required to work for at least five days in a week. Moreover, part-time employees should be paid for overtime work. They are entitled to paid public holidays. The public holiday pay should be pro-rated based on the part-time employee's number of hours of work.

All employees covered by the Employment Act are entitled to annual leave. A part-time employee who has completed three months of service is entitled to paid annual leave in proportion to the yearly entitlement of a similar full-time employee, on the basis of his/her working hours.
