CEO Lunch

The Law on Social Security moves fast:

Any Impacts on Employers and Businesses

in Cambodia?

14th June 2018 | Venue: Raffles Le Royal Hotel


Against the backdrop of fast-developing labor and social policies, a new draft Law on Social Security is being proposed by Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training. Unlike the social security schemes established under Law on Social Security Schemes (2002), the proposed draft Law on Social Security intends to establish a broader scope of social security coverage, in terms of both persons to be covered and the types of social security schemes.

Persons to be covered by the draft Law will be not only persons under the private sector, but also persons in the public sector and self-employed persons. The social security system will include not only employment injury, health insurance, and pension, but also unemployment and disability schemes.

Although still under construction, if enacted in its present form, the new law is likely present new challenges with regard to the contribution to additional social security schemes that would span across not only the labor intensive industries but also the rest of the business sectors. Given the quick pace of development of this law, it is essential that employers and businesses become informed, provide views and input on the draft law, and prepared for the implementation of the law when adopted.


This CEO Lunch Event will bring together experts and professionals directly involved in the consultation on the Draft Law on Social Security, including CAMFEBA, Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) and ILO Specialist and Consultant, to provide briefing to you and obtain your views and input on:

  • Main features and provisions of the draft Law of Social Security, and what have differed from the Law on Social Security Scheme of 2002
  • Potential impacts of the new law, if/when adopted, on employers and businesses in Cambodia
  • How CAMFEBA has advocated and will advocate for the private sector with regard to the draft Law, and how your views and input will be conveyed to Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training.
