Social Insurance updates
The Department of Labour has announced a few changes to take place from September 2017. A penalty of €500 will be applied for each employee working without being registered at the social insurance office, this is multiplied by the months of non-registration. Each employer has the responsibility to provide the details of the new employee at the social insurance office one day before the employee starts working.
Each employer should keep a recruitment record for all employees with the following information:
- Employee serial number
- Name and surname
- ID / Passport and social insurance number
- Hiring date
- Employment starting date
If an employee does not have a social insurance number then he should fill in an application which in turn the employer has the responsibility to submit at the social insurance office within 7 days.
