Administrative procedure simplification and shortening procedural time support labourers, enterprises affected by Covid-19 pandemic


On July, 7th, 2021, in Hanoi, Ministry of Labour - Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) held a press conference announcing the Decision No.23/2021/QĐ-TTg of the Prime Minister on regulating the implementation of a number of policies support employees and employers who meet difficulties due to Covid-19 pandemic. Attend the conference were Minister Dao Ngoc Dung, Deputy Ministers: Le Tan Dung, Le Van Thanh, Nguyen Thi Ha, Nguyen Ba Hoan and representatives from relating ministries, Sectors and reporters from media agencies...

“The implementation of Resolution 68/NQ-CP is a revolution in procedures and a breakthrough for employers to fastest access the support policies. Accordingly, within 7-10 days after receiving the dossier, the relevant agencies and localities will have to pay support for people and businesses” – said the Minister of MOLISA.
According to Minister Dao Ngoc Dung, it can be seen that the fundamental new point of this support is to focus on two main objects: employees and employers.
Specifically, support focuses on workers who are directly affected by the epidemic, such as in industrial parks, export processing zones and in enterprises that use a lot of labourers and workers have to be medical treated and live in isolation zones in this 4th epidemic.
The policy consists of three basic groups, inluding: directly support cash for the workers whose contracts or their jobs are suspended; exemption and reduction policies, support from insurance policies as labour safety insurance, retirement insurance, death insurance and unemployment insurance; and support policies to restore production.
The procedure is as transparent as possible is another new highlight of this support. The previous support package of 62 trillion VND had strict criteria, but with the new support policy, there are only 4 days left to review the procedures and 3 more days to disburse.
For more information on Decision No. 23/2021/QD-TTg, the Minister said that the Decision had some important new details. 12 groups of policies's subjects would be specified most clearly. The measure, time of the procedure, the process of solving. Decentralization clearly highlighted the responsibility of the head, who is the Chairman of the People's Committee of the localities.
