18   Registration Foreign Worker Socso
Effective 1 January 2019, employers in Malaysia that hire foreign workers (excluding domestic servants), including expatriates, with valid documents, must register their employees with SOCSO (the country’s Social Security organization) and contribute to the Employment Injury Scheme. Under the Employment Injury Scheme, foreign workers, including expatriates, are eligible for medical benefits, temporary/permanent disablement benefits, constant-attendance allowance, dependent’s benefits, and rehabilitation. However, benefits from the Invalidity Scheme do not extend to foreign workers, including expatriates. We assist in registration and contribution for your foreign workers. Save yourself from the hassle, strain and frustration.
