So, I’ve been working for the same cram school for over 8 years. Pretty easy, good hourly pay, I walk in, teach and walk out. I just figured out that they have not been paying any labor insurance or making any kind of pension contributions. Is this normal? They tried to avoid giving me health insurance when I started, but when I suggested that I just go and get it myself my insurance card miraculously appeared with in a week. I know that the owner has screwed over many other people so it doesn’t surprise me. They told a new teacher that they will only give her health/labor insurance if they can decrease the money they declare and that she pay 50% because according to their school contract (what ever that means) the amount the government requires them to pay is too much. I don know that if a business has 5 or fewer employees they are exempt from some of this and my school is made up of 3 companies. But, there are more than 18 people working there so it appears we have gone over the threshold. I’ve checked some of the other posting, but most seem to be quite old.
So the questions are:
- Is the school required to pay labor insurance? I work 16 hours a week.
- Are they required to make pension contributions?
- If this these things are required, is is possible to get them to make backpayments?
- Has anyone dealt with this recently?
