Social Security Organization Comes Under Private Sector Fire

Social Security Organization Comes Under Private Sector Fire Social Security Organization Comes Under Private Sector Fire

Iran’s Social Security Organization does not abide by the law and it has caused numerous problems for different businesses, said representatives of the private sector in the 19th session of Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture’s Business Facilitation Committee on Tuesday.
Criticizing SSO’s extensive interventions in businesses, Alireza Mirbolouk, a board member at Tehran Industries, Mines and Trade House, pointed out that what the organization is doing now reaches far beyond its original mission, which was to make certain employers pay their employees’ insurance fees.
“Any attempt at rectifying the organization’s policies fails, even if petitions are brought before the parliament as the organization has strong lobbyists among lawmakers,” said another member of the Committee, Fereydoun Talaeizadeh, who is the tax advisor to the president of TCCIM.
According to Daryoush Mohajer, secretary-general of Iran Confederation of Industries, the government should give up the ownership of the organization and the Supreme Council for Social Security should be revived to fix its deep-rooted problems. 
“TCCIM’s Business Facilitation Committee should cooperate with the parliament to prevent further unlawful acts,” he said.
