Employers still avoiding dues

The Sociálna poisťovňa (SP) state insurer says some employers have again ceased paying obligatory insurance premiums. The refusals are apparently in the hope of another wave of debt pardons after many self-employed people had premiums pardoned last month.

SP is struggling with huge debts and has repeatedly said that the large number of companies avoiding insurance payments are crippling its finances.
