The Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) was set up in 2006 by the tripartite partners (Ministry of Manpower, National Trades Union Congress, and Singapore National Employers Federation), to promote the adoption of fair, responsible and progressive employment practices.

TAFEP is one of three agencies under Tripartite Alliance Limited (TAL), along with the Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM) and the Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC).
