Exactly. There in lies the crux of this discussion.the lynx wrote:I can assure you that SRS or CPF-equivalent payment to EP holders is unheard of in my side as well as many other companies. In fact, some MNCs don't even factor that into initial salary negotiation with incoming EP holders. So what happens when they become PRs? It can be anything.
I didnt say that EP holders get CPF contribution explicitly as a seperate item in their payslip. There is no way to compare 2 peoples salaries. So there is no way to tell whether the company is assuming that CPF is being paid to the EP holder or not. Its only when the person converts to PR, the company either needs to get additional budget to pay the CPF or reduce the pay of the person.
