I just went online MOM to check if my ex maid has come back to work and I found this message.
Check out this message and go MOM website to confirm it. I hope I'm not the only one seeing this......(too good to be true! )
I hope point 2) is true and really take off with all of us employers giving feed back. It would be some confort to us IMHO.
I've copied and paste the message here

New features in WPOL
Dear WPOL users
We are adding new features in WPOL from 15 Nov 2013 to help you make a more informed decision on hiring a foreign domestic worker. This may save you from unnecessary work permit rejections and fees, or hiring an unsuitable worker. The new features will:
1) Block you from submitting an application if you, or the foreigner is not currently eligible to get a work permit. Where possible, we will tell you why this is the case, and what you can do next. You should not re-submit the application manually through SingPost because it will not change the outcome.
2) Inform you if the foreign domestic worker you are applying the work permit for has feedback on her which was provided by the ex-employer. We will also give you the contact details of the ex-employer so that you can find out more if you wish.

With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.
