Re: Statutory deductions for contract staff

Dear sir,

I have a question that needs your help. Our company has contract staff in its payroll. Do we need to pay them EPF and SOCSO as well?

Are they applicable for medical leave, medical claims and annual leave?

Any help is much appreciated.

For EPF and SOCSO, I am afraid you will have to consult the respective organizations.

I am quite sure your contract staff are not covered by the Employment Act, meaning their salary may be more than 1.5K per month. If so, medical leave, medical claims and annual leave will have to go according to what are stated in the contracts.
