SEVEN local workers have been found not registered with the Employees Trust Fund (TAP) and Supplemental Contributory Pension (SCP) during surprise visit by the Enforcement Department of TAP to 42 business premises in the capital yesterday.
This is part of the continuous efforts by TAP to ensure that local workers are registered with and contributing to both schemes.
Employers who failed to present the necessary documents were instructed to come to TAP office for further actions, such as, processing the registration of their employees and to make payment of contribution and arrears, if any.
TAP would like to take this opportunity to inform that employees who are citizens and permanent residents of this country are entitled to contribute to the TAP scheme and SCP scheme every month. Complaints can be lodged by visiting any of TAP’s branches, or by contacting TAP’s Enforcement department at 2382929 extension 733 or 732. Members who have registered as e-Amanah users may also lodge complaints online via TAP’s website at www.tap.com.bn.
