Pay Attention to Enroll in Labor, Employment and Labor Occupational Accident Insurance and Contribute to Labor Pension when Taking Summer Jobs

Students often work part-time during the summer vacation. The BLI reminds the employers that, although the summertime jobs are offered on a short-term basis, the employers should ensure that they enroll these student workers to labor insurance, employment insurance and labor occupational accident insurance, and contribute to labor pensions on the date of employment. The purpose is to protect the job security and labor rights of the student workers.

The BLI explained that a business entity shall be subject to the compulsory enrollment requirements under the Employment Insurance Act and Labor Occupational Accident Insurance and Protection Act, if it has one or more eligible employees thereunder. The business entity should, in accordance with relevant regulations, enroll the employee on the date of employment and that they can voluntarily enroll employees in labor insurance. Business entities with five or more employees should enroll their employees under labor insurance, employment insurance and occupational labor accident insurance. Business entities applicable to the Labor Standards Act should also make labor pension contribution for the employee.

When applying for enrollment of summertime student workers in labor insurance, employment insurance and labor occupational accident insurance and contributing to their labor pension, the insured unit should honestly report the actual monthly wage of the student workers. The BLI will proactively classify the workers into appropriate categories according to the “Table of Grades of Labor Insurance Salary”, “Insured Salary Category Chart of Labor Occupational Accident Insurance” and “Monthly Contribution Classification of Labor Pension”. If the student worker is hired on a part-time basis, please make sure that a note stating “part-time” is added to (or ticked on) the enrollment application form so that the labor insurance, employment insurance and labor occupational accident insurance premium and labor pension contribution can be calculated and charged correctly.

The BLI calls on employers to enroll summertime student workers under the insurances, and contribute to labor pensions according to the relevant regulations. If the employers failed to insure the summertime student workers and file labor pension contributions, and such failure is verified by following investigations, the BLI shall impose fines respectively according to the regulations of labor insurance, employment insurance, labor occupational accident insurance and labor pension, the BLI shall announce the reasons of the labor occupational accident insurance and labor pension violation.
