IPOH:The Social Security Organization (SOCSO) believes there are still employers who have not registered under the Employee Social Security Act 1969 (Act 4) and the Employment Insurance System Act 2017 (Act 800)

The matter must be done by an active employer who employs at least one employee.

SOCSO announced in a statement that it will take enforcement action against employers who fail to register before the deadline on June 30.

According to the statement, employers who have not yet registered with SOCSO are asked to do so voluntarily throughout the whitening period which is implemented from May 1 to June 30.

“During this two-month period, registered employers will be exempted from compound actions or prosecution even if the prescribed period has passed.

“Exemption from action includes Late Payment Contribution Interest (FCLB) which will be imposed and applicable to Act 4 and Act 800,” said the statement.

Therefore, be reminded that employers who fail to register within that period will face legal action when enforcement through Ops Kesan is launched from next July 1.

SOCSO will not compromise with employer non-compliance and will not consider any exemptions from such enforcement actions.
