Ministry of Social Welfare has set February 15, 2015 the deadline for 50 companies to pay social insurances to their employees, which in total owe to state about $87.6 ml.
Minister of Social Welfare and Youth, Erion Veliaj, declared on Monday that the institution he is in charge of has sent letters to 50 economic subjects that have not yet paid social insurances to their employees and are indebted to the state.
The entering in force of the new pension’s scheme does not ensure decent pensions to those who deserve it, declared Veliaj, since their employers have failed in paying their social insurance.
The letter sent to companies, quotes that most of indebted state institutions have started to pay outstanding debts to the state for the past 8 years, but this comprises only 1/5 of the total debt since the majority of the indebted are private subjects.
Veliaj announced that subjects which do not comply with their obligations will face heavy sanctions, since the nonpayment of social insurance to employees and the outstanding debts to the government constitutes grave violation of administrative rules and employees’ labor rights.
