Temporary, contract staff to enjoy protection under PERKESO

MARAN (July 14, 2013): The government is expected to spend RM30 million every year to provide social insurance coverage under the Pertubuhan Keselamatan Sosial (Perkeso) to about 63,000 contract and temporary staff in the civil service.

Deputy Human Resource minister Datuk Ismail Muttalib said civil servants on contract or temporary employment can now contribute to Perkeso starting June 1 and enjoy the protection and benefits provided.

Perkeso is a social security protection by social insurance including medical and cash benefits, provision of artificial aids and rehabilitation to employees to reduce the sufferings and to provide financial guarantees and protection to the family.

"With the new initiative, security of contract and temporary workers is more secured because they come under the protection of Pertubuhan Keselamatan Sosial (Perkeso)," he told reporters, here, today.

He added that contract and temporary staffs would be provided protection under Perkeso and also receive benefits, just like normal civil servants. – Bernama
