THE SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM (SSS) had issued show cause orders to erring employers here who violated the Social Security Act of 1997 (Republic Act 8282), as amended by Social Security Act of 2018 (RA 11199).
The SSS conducted the Run Against Contribution Evaders (RACE) campaign operation to 10 establishments who violated the social legislation laws such as their failure to remit social security contributions for their employees, under-declared salaries, and lack of SSS registration.
Atty. Renato Jacinto Cuisia, acting Vice-President for Operations Legal Services Divisions I & II said the show cause orders were served to establishments, which persisted in ignoring the notices of violation from the SSS.
“They were sent demand letters to settle their obligations but ignored them until the operation,” he said.
The SSS has a condonation program on penalties against employers found to have violated the social legislation laws, covering March to September this year, he said.
This is the second RACE campaign held in the Zamboanga Peninsula region after the initial operation in Pagadian City last year. It was conducted simultaneously in other parts of the country.
