At present, the State Social Protection Fund of Azerbaijan has registered around 600 foreign citizens employees of companies functioning in Azerbaijan in system of personal account of citizens, and they were given certifications on social insurance, Salim Muslimov, the head of the fund, told on July 12, Trend reports. In the future, this number will speedily increase, he told.
According to Muslimov, especially this belongs to the employees of companies functioning on base of oil contracts. At the moment, the employees are being defined in all oil contracts, but there are different terms in several contracts.
There are such contracts where the foreign employees in contractor and subcontractor companies are exempt from the social insurance, Muslimov told.
Recently I met with the vise-president of BP in connection with juridical questions. The greatest number of foreign citizens is observed in contractors and subcontractors of this company. After settlement of this question, it will be applied in connection with other contracts, Muslimov stressed.
In the contracts where it was stated that the system may be applied only to contractors the system will be applied only to contractors and if it is possible to apply to contractors and subcontractors, then the system will be applied to both categories, Muslimov added.
