The Bureau of Labor Insurance makes the necessary adjustments for workers whose Labor & Employment Insurance Salaries and Contribution Salaries for Labor Pensions are lower than their taxable salaries. Last Modified:2015-08-12

In order to facilitate the preservation of workers' labor and employment insurance and pension rights, the Bureau of Labor Insurance has compared workers' labor and employment insurance salaries and pension contribution salaries against taxable salary information obtained from 2014. Working in batches, the Bureau has made adjustments for the insured and contribution units whose calculated insurance and pension contributions based on salaries are lower than their workers' taxable salaries. Insurance salaries were adjusted for approximately 40,000 insured units, affecting about 170,000 people. Pension contribution salaries were adjusted for approximately 50,000 contributing units, affecting about 230,000 people. The adjustment notices were mailed out at the end of June, 2015, while the rosters were mailed out at the end of July. Labor and employment insurance premiums will be calculated based on the adjusted salary starting July 1, 2015, and labor pension contributions will be calculated based on the adjusted salary starting August 1.

The Bureau of Labor Insurance stated that in the past, similar adjustments were made based on taxable salaries from the previous 2 years. For example, 2014 adjustments were made based on the taxable salary information from 2012. Therefore, the adjusted insurance salaries and labor pension contribution salaries often differed greatly from the actual salaries earned at the time of adjustment. For 2015, the Bureau obtained temporary files of the 2014 taxable salaries data from the Ministry of Finance. The adjustments will match more closely with workers' actual salaries earned at the time of the adjustment. However, a time gap still remains; therefore, if an insured unit discovers that adjusted insurance salary does not match employee’s monthly salary, it may submit a request for correction by mail, along with corroborating evidence such as the pay stubs, to the Bureau of Labor Insurance within 30 days of receipt of the adjustment notice. If there is any other difference between employee’s insurance salary (pension contribution salary) and current monthly salary, the insured unit should fill out and submit an adjustment form and verify its salary declaration as soon as possible in order to protect the worker's rights and avoid labor disputes.

After the salary adjustments, the Bureau of Labor Insurance will continue to track the adjusted units. Units that require numerous or consecutive adjustments will be under investigation. Appropriate penalties will be imposed for any illegal activities discovered during the investigation. The goal is to ensure employers declare their employees' insured salaries and contribution salaries truthfully, protecting the rights of workers.
