Campaign to stop workplace discrimination is underway!



On 15th Nov 2013, former Robinsons employee, Lawrence Wee, together with seven other people launched a campaign “Stop hurting, quit labelling” at the home of local film and theatre director Glenn Goei. The campaign aims to create awareness about the issue and raise funds for legal costs. Among the attendees were local celebrities like Lim Yu Beng and Neo Swee Lin along with familiar faces like Dr Vincent Wijeysingha.

The application with High Court seeks a declaration that protection against discrimination under Article 12 of the Singapore Constitution should include within its ambit all Singaporeans regardless of religion, race, place of origin, gender and sexual orientation.

Human rights lawyer M Ravi said at the event, “…we are here to honour this very important constitutional challenge to respect equality and non-discrimination in employment for gay men, lesbians, basically the LGBT community in Singapore. A constitutional challenge of this magnitude is public interest litigation because it affects a significant section of the population in Singapore. So this is not restricted to Lawrence Wee.”

    This comment might be inappropriate, but I'm just curious - may I know who's the guy in the avatar? - the guy with the headset, he looks very endearing.

    Support employment equality in Singapore. Discrimination on any ground is inherently wrong and goes against the principles of natural justice. Do the right thing and support this cause.
