Employers evading social insurance payments affects workers’ rights
Evasion of social insurance payments for workers increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, as enterprises grappled the economic fall-out of pandemic control measures. However, as stipulated by law, avoiding payment and racking up insurance debt severely affects the social security rights of employees.
The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs has proposed that inspections on the payment of social insurance for employees be conducted on large scale, so that the law is implemented effectively. The ministry also suggested social insurance management agencies have the right to block accounts of violating employers to make them fulfil their duties to employees.
