    TAP surprise visits detect violations

    Izah Azahari

    The Employees Trust Fund (TAP) through its Enforcement Unit made surprise visits to business premises around the vicinity of Mukim Kilanas as part of its efforts to ensure employers have registered their local employees and contribute to the TAP and SCP schemes.

    From the visit to the 43 business premises, TAP inspectors found that nine local employees and two employers have not been registered to the TAP and SCP schemes. Employers who failed to present necessary documents during the visit were instructed to be present at TAP office for further action.

    TAP reminded employers on their responsibility to register and contribute for their employees who are eligible to the TAP and SCP schemes. It is mandatory for employees who are citizens and permanent residents of Brunei Darussalam to be registered and contributing to the schemes, including part-time workers, contract workers, daily-paid workers and workers on probation.

    Under Section 26 of the Employee Trust Act (Chapter 167), if found guilty, an employer will be fined not more than BND3,000 for the first offence and not more than BND10,000 for second and subsequent offences.

    Complaints can be lodged by visiting any of TAP’s branches or by calling the TAP Call Centre at 2382800 during working hours or through WhatsApp at 8998290. Alternatively, e-Amanah users may lodge complaints by logging into their account via TAP’s website at www.tap.com.bn.
