AMMONNEWS - Labor Minister, Nidal Bataineh, said the Defense Order for social security aimed at completing the economic and social protection ecosystem provided by the state to the private sector and its workers.
In a briefing at the Prime Ministry on Thursday evening, Bataineh said there are private sector institutions that are authorized to operate and others that are not, according to a health and preventive criterion.

This criterion, Bataineh explained, led the authorized institutions to have employees working in them upon request of the employer, while there are institutions that are totally suspended now, where the employer bears the costs, so the Defense Order was issued giving the employer the right to pay 50 percent of the salary and not to bear this burden alone.

The Social Security Corporation will pay a part of the salary on behalf of the employer.

The Labor Minister lauded the prompt and responsible response from the private sector to the Defense Order No. 6 of 2020, as 90 percent of the private sector institutions paid their workers March's wages, while 80 percent of those who fired from the private sector returned to their jobs.
