I haven't seen any company that added the Employees contribution as extra, when the employee got PRthe lynx wrote: That's because only a fraction of companies do that to their EP holders. Most cut both contributions, some give ER only, some give both (meaning take-home pay is not affected)!
I only have anecdotal evidence on my end about the above.
but have seen few and worked in a few, for foreigners, say offered pay is x $, after negotiation, employee gets a pleasant surprise to see pay slip is negotiated pay + 16%
Mandatory CPF Contributions for EP holders was stopped in 1995 and voluntary contributions by EP holders were stopped a couple of years later but I cannot remember the actual year that this happened nor can I find it on the CPF site.
Voluntary contribution for EP Holders was stopped in year 2000 I believe.
Until then, even if employer doesn't contribute, Employee can park money in CPF, subject to the 20% max limit
