Social Security Policy for Foreign Employees in Vietnam

Author(s): Bich Hong Hoang, Thi Lien Ngo, Anh Tuan Le


In the context of globalization, employees tend to migrate to countries that have the ability to find jobs and live more comfortably. However, these employees may face the risks relating to their health, financial difficulties, etc. Meanwhile, the social security policy in the host country might not guarantee minimum social security rights, or there could be discrimination between domestic and foreign employees. To protect transnational migrant employees, the International Labor Organization (ILO) has issued several conventions and recommendations on ensuring (minimum) social security and equality of treatment, which is intended to be performed by countries that have already ratified and to serve as reference for countries that have not yet ratified. Although Vietnam has not ratified the Conventions on social security for foreign employees, the social security policy has been being developed and improved based on conventions of ILO. The authors focus on researching social security policy for foreigners working in Vietnam, with reference to the provisions of ILO Conventions.
