Is it right or wrong to require employees to pay the entire insurance?
Mr. Nguyen Dan (Quang Binh province) inquired whether a company (the employer) demanding employees to pay the entire 32% portion of social insurance (SI) and health insurance (HI) which fall under the responsibility of the employer is correct or not.
Regarding this matter, the Quang Binh Provincial Social Insurance responded as follows:
Based on the provisions in Article 21 Section 2, Article 85 Section 1, and Article 86 Section 1 of the Social Insurance Law of 2014; Article 15 Section 1 of the Unified Text of the Health Insurance Law No. 01/VBHNVPQH; Article 44 Section 2 of the Employment Law of 2013, the employer is responsible for monthly contributions to SI and HI as prescribed, deducting the employee's portion from their salary to be simultaneously deposited into the SI and HI funds.
Thus, the total contribution for SI and HI at present is 32% of the monthly salary as a basis for contributions. Within this, the employer is responsible for 21.5%, while the employee is responsible for 10.5% of the salary as a basis for contributions.
Therefore, with regards to the issue raised, the employer's demand for employees to pay the entire SI and HI, including the portion that falls under the company's responsibility, is not in accordance with legal regulations. Thus, it is advisable to suggest that the company complies with the legal provisions or involve relevant authorities, such as labor unions, to protect the rightful interests of employees.
