What is Absentee Payroll and is CPF payable for Absentee Payroll?

The Absentee Payroll funding is a grant to help employers defray the manpower cost incurred when they send their employees for certifiable skills training.

For training conducted during the employees' working hours, the employer is required to pay the usual wages to their employees. Hence, CPF contribution is required on their wages.

For training conducted outside of the employees' working hours, where the employer is required to pay overtime pay to their employees, CPF is required on their wages, including any overtime pay.
