CPF contribution

Hi

1. need some advice. it seems that all jobs even when part time also requires employer cpf contribution. yet i notice many casual and part time jobs or ac hoc jobs do not have cpf contribution by the company. is this still a norm?

2. those food runner and grab drivers, do they have cpf? anyone knows?

3. i am actually looking for part time job eg tutor. if i agree verbally with the company not to pay me cpf, is this still considered 'illegal' on employee/ employer part?

Thanks.

let me know put it in another way...
I apply for this tutor job but the centre said they wun offer me cpf contribution, so if i tell them up front that its illegal, so it will mean they die die must pay me cpf, else i can report them to cpf board?

and since there is so many company skipping the cpf contribution, why is mom or cpf board not doing anything to warn or penalise them?

There are other details on questions you have asked. The MOM website is a good place for you to go.

It depends on the company hired u as an employee or a vendor of service.
if you're hired as a vendor to provide service, you're liable for your own contribution, like a self-employed.

if you're hired as an employee then they are liable for your CPF.

end of the day, it depends on what's written in the contract of employment.

Thanks.

nothing to close eyes.

they're vendors, not employees.

the whole gig economy is built on basis everyone is a vendor. unicorns refuse to pay cost and rather "steal" by not offering employment, or pay rental. examples all over for you to see.

They are freelancers, not employee. So no employer cpf contribution.
