CPF Payment for Temporary Workers
Dear HR Practitioners,
Could you share how you would approach the case of hiring temporary help for admin work at hourly wages and if you would pay CPF? We are planning to hire a temp for a week and not sure if we are to pay CPF for him, and if we need to work out a Contract for Service document to have proper documentation.
Would appreciate any advice.
Thanks in advance.
CPF contributions are payable for part-time/casual/temporary employees who are:
-Singapore Citizens/Singapore Permanent Residents,
-Earning more than $50 in a month, and
-Engaged under a contract of service.
Based on CPF board website.
If we hire direct, we pay CPF. Sometimes we park under agency so agency takes care of that.
Technically we have to contribute CPF for temporary workers. We have contributed CPF for our part time office cleaner as the HR system auto calculate CPF when we key in the NRIC Number.
