为劳动者缴纳社会保险费是《社会保险法》、《劳动合同法》明文规定的用人单位应当承担的法定义务。根据《劳动合同法》第三十八条、第四十六条的规定,用人单位未履行该法定义务导致的后果之一是劳动者以此为由离职的可要求用人单位支付经济补偿金。用人单位多会依法为劳动者建立社保账户,但实务中未依法足额缴纳社保的情形屡见不鲜。对于未足额缴纳社保是否属于前述规定中用人单位应当支付经济补偿金的情形,法律并未明文规定,殊不知,实务中各地对此规定不一,用人单位仍可能面临被员工要求支付经济补偿金的风险。 Continue Reading 未足额缴纳社保导致员工离职须支付经济补偿金?

外卖骑士在工作期间出现交通事故,赔偿责任有时候由外卖平台承担,有时候要骑士自身承担,有时候还由不知名的第三方承担。到底谁来承担赔偿责任,受害人应该向谁主张权利,这本来应该是一个有规可循的事情,因为,根据《侵权责任法》的基本原则,当存在“用工关系”(包括劳动关系、劳务关系、雇佣关系以及劳务派遣关系)时,执行工作任务的人员对他人造成损害的,由分配工作任务的单位(统称“用工单位”)承担侵权责任。但如今,外卖骑士与外卖平台之间的关系五花八门,外卖骑士引起的损害赔偿责任谁来承担,也变得不那么简单。 Continue Reading 外卖骑士撞了人,平台管不管?

If couriers have any traffic accident when delivering services, the compensation liability may sometimes be borne by the takeout platform, or sometimes by couriers themselves, or even by an unknown third party. In principle, there should be rules to govern the apportion of the compensation liability, for according to the basic principles of Tort Law, when a worker in “working relationship” (including labor relationship, service relationship,employment relationship and labor dispatch relationship) causes damage to others during delivery of work, the party assigning the work ( “employer”) shall bear the tort liability. However, now the relationship between couriers and takeout platforms is so complex that the question who should bear the liability also becomes complex. Continue Reading Who is responsible for a takeout carrier’s traffic accident?

根据《法制日报》10月24日报道,全国人大常委会法工委分别向广东、云南、江西、海南、福建5个地方人大发函,建议这五地根据本省实际情况对地方人口与计划生育条例中有关企业对其超生职工给予开除或者解除劳动合同的规定适时作出修改。

全国人大常委会法工委有关部门负责人认为,因现实情况与立法之初相比发生了重大变化,执行相关地方人口与计生条例的有关规定时,原则上应适时作出调整。对于暂时难以调整的,在执行上也应有所变化,至少应减缓执行力度,以适应时代和政策变化,适应改革发展要求,这也是立法体现适当性的必然要求。  Continue Reading 计划生育新时代:超生还会丢工作吗?
