The Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (Tafep) stepped in following a job advertisement posted by popular YouTuber and vlogger Nas Daily who was searching for a Vietnamese to join his team in Singapore.

A spokesperson for Tafep said that Nuseir Yassin , or Nas Daily, has acknowledged that he might have given people the wrong impression in his Facebook post, excluding Singaporeans from being considered for a job in his company, adding that the latter post could have been clearer to avoid this misunderstanding.

According to responses that the employment practice watchdog gave The Straits Times, Nas has been reminded to abide by the Tripartite Guidelines on Fair Employment Practices and the Fair Consideration Framework, and to give Singaporeans “due consideration” for positions in his Singapore company.

For all Singapore-based jobs, words and phrases that exclude Singaporeans or indicate a preference for non-Singaporeans should not be used.

The Tafep spokesperson also said: “As employers in Singapore are aware, those found with discriminatory hiring practices will have their work pass privileges curtailed.”

After YouTuber Nas Daily’s announcement that he was looking for a video-maker from Vietnam to join his local team, many Singaporeans took to his social media page with rather sarcastic and irate comments.

On Monday (August 12), Nas posted the following announcement: “Dear Vietnam,

Job opportunity!!

I want to hire a Vietnamese person to join my team in Singapore.

I’m looking for the best video maker in Vietnam to join me in a full-time position. You have to know how to make videos. You have to be the best at shooting or editing.

If you are that person or if your friend is that person, please email me at creators@nasdaily.com. Make sure to include ONE video that you made.

If you share this post with someone and I hire them, I will pay you $500 USD!”

Many Vietnamese who commented on Nas’ post were rather excited for the opportunity, but the same was not so on Singaporeans’ end.

Singaporeans expressed their unhappiness that Nas did not consider a local video-maker for his local team.
