Laws are passed, insurance obligations for underground workers are forgiven, and

Parliament yesterday approved two important laws that solve the problems created over the years for former employees of agricultural enterprises and for underground workers. Both of these draft laws have been previously reviewed and approved by the Committee on Labor and Social Affairs and the Committee on Economy, where it was specifically proposed to forgive the obligations to the SSI for underground employees and to recognize social security for former employees of cooperatives. Through the draft law "On the forgiveness of obligations that former underground workers have to the social insurance fund", a deadlock is also resolved, for unpaid obligations of underground workers-miners in function of their special financial treatment or for the effect of old age pension. From the data made public by the draft law it is shown that, for a long time these persons could not pay the debt obligation to the social insurance funds because while they were treated with supplementary pension, they worked and received a salary, but did not pay the insurance. As evidenced in time, most of them could not afford to pay insurance payments, but also that they were unclear with the interpretation of the law. Based on these data, Parliament finally decided to forgive the debt created. “The fines calculated by the social security system are forgiven, calculated for the period that they have been treated with benefits, who at the same time have developed economic activity as employed or self-employed, according to the unpaid situation until the date of entry into force of this law. The imposed obligations are forgiven, which have been identified according to point 1 of this article, ie with special treatment, which at the moment of entry into force of this law, have been appealed and are in the process of administrative appeal or judicial process ", it is stated in the draft law. Among other things, this law stipulates that debits have been created also because these employees receive less supplementary pension than other categories. These persons are currently treated with pensions according to the provisions of the law "On Social Insurance in the Republic of Albania", or according to the law "On pensions of employees who have worked in mines, underground" but for the liquidation of liabilities created by non-declaration of employment and illegal withdrawal of the benefit installment, in previous periods, are treated with 50-75% of the monthly benefit,

Law on former employees of agricultural enterprises

Through the draft law on recognition as an insurance period for the effect of benefiting from social security of employment time in former agricultural cooperatives will facilitate a difficult process for citizens, who have often been in front of the court to find their right . Therefore, even through its approval, they will get what a considerable number of about 40 cooperatives deserve. The draft law provides a solution to the long-standing problem related to the seniority of members who have worked for former agricultural cooperatives. "In many cases the registers of these cooperatives have been submitted incompletely, or have not been submitted at all, some of these registers were destroyed and because of this the periods of seniority at work at agricultural cooperatives have not been recognized to members. The pursuit of court proceedings has had and has a financial cost for this category, which has been repaid by the person himself or by the social security bodies themselves ", is explained in the report accompanying the draft law. Among other things, it is announced that the purpose of this draft law is to recognize as insurance period for the purpose of benefiting from social insurance, periods of employment in former agricultural cooperatives, for which the Directorate of Central Archive of the Social Insurance Institute has not submitted Complete documentation for seniority from work from the date of creation until the entry into force of law no. 7501 dated 19.07.1991, "On the land", as amended.
