A MIGRANT worker's group has spoken out against the Manpower Ministry's plans to get all firms to issue itemised payslips in two years.

Transient Workers' Count Two (TWC2) said the two-year deadline is too long for medium and big companies and asked that these firms be given six months to comply.

"Such companies should already have the resources to issue itemised payslips," said the group.

Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said on Monday that the ministry aimed to introduced the new ruling on payslips within two years, to "change behaviour in a sustainable way".
