How many complaints were received about the contributions  not being paid to the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) in every state. Please specify: -

(a) EPF takes serious attention on employers who default. EPF enforcement machinery  ensures that employers pay contributions according to the EPF Act 1991. For the period January to March 1998, EPF had received 3.703 complaints about the failure of employers to contribute. Total complaints received in 1997 was 14.469 cases, in 1996, 19.455 cases and 21.880 cases in 1995. At the end of March 1998, the cumulative balance number of cases  under investigation or in court  is 20.779.

(b) EPF ensures that complaints received from members, especially in the case of defaulters be investigated promptly. However, EPF do not rely solely on the complaint to safeguard the interests of workers. EPF through its computerised information system also monitors the employers' monthly payments. The system is able to detect employers who fail to contribute and EPF eaxminers will then investigate.

(c) In March 1998, out of 294.710 registered employers, it was found that 14.418 or 4.89% of employers had failed to pay a month of contribution or more. At the end of 1997, 4:44% or 13.143 of 296.299 registered employers had failed to pay a month or more contributions. In the first quarter of 1998, a total of 425 employers have been sued in court for failing to remit, while in 1997 the number of employers who are sued were 1.672.
(d) EPF also made  door to door spot checks on business premises to ensure that employers are responsible contributors and registered with the EPF, the right contributions made to for all employees. In 1997, EPF have inspected 100.656 business premises, where 3.77% or 3,791 employers were not registered with the EPF. Assessment of outstanding employers contributions amounted to RM7.8 million. In March 1998, EPF had visited the 20.969 business premises and  2.26% or 473 employers were found not registered with EPF and the amount of assessment contribution arrears was RM1.4 million.
