More Inspections to Ensure Employers Contribute to SOCSO for Employees

A total of 5,579 employers were inspected by the Social Security Organisation (SOCSO) via its national-level Ops Kesan (detection operations) launched on June 8.

A total of 1,124 compounds and 8 compliance orders were issued for various offences.

SOCSO Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Seri Dr. Mohammed Azman Aziz Mohammed stated that there were a total of 833 compounds for offences under the Employees’ Social Security Act 1969 (Act 4).

Meanwhile, 291 compounds and 8 compliance orders were issued under the Employment Insurance System Act 2017 (Act 800).

“Inspections have found many employers have yet to register and contribute for their employees under Act 4 and Act 800, which are about 20% out of those inspected.

“Thus, we will intensify efforts to visit employers to ensure they register and contribute for employees.

He said so to the media when attending the state’s Jamin Kerja Keluarga Malaysia Career Carnival at the Tapah Sports and Youth Complex.

Earlier, the programme was officiated by the Human Resources Minister, Datuk Seri M Saravanan.

Last Wednesday at Shah Alam, Mohammed reminded owners of all types of large or small businesses to contribute to SOCSO for their employees.

This includes roadside stalls such as those selling nasi lemak and banana fritters as they are no exception if inspections were to be carried out. 

Based on Act 4 and Act 800, it is mandatory for employers to contribute if they have even one employee.

The acts do not exempt any employer from this responsibility.
