Workers are advised to keep checking their Fiji National Provident Fund contributions while they are still working, says FNPF chief executive officer Jaoji Koroi.

He made the comment after confirming that the FNPF contributions for a security guard who collapsed and died at the Tebara Plaza in Nakasi on Monday were not paid by his former employer.

The man, Rupeni Savubale, was formerly employed by Smart Security Services before he was recently employed by Tebara Plaza as its security officer for more than a week.

Mr Koroi said his team would conduct an investigation with the company on the issue.

The Fiji Sun sighted the late Mr Savubale’s latest payslip and saw that there was a deduction of $4.50 as his FNPF contribution.

The company could not be reached for a comment yesterday, despite calls and messages.

Mr Koroi strongly advised workers to keep checking their contributions and to let FNPF know of any problem, so his team could follow up with employers.

He said many industries including the security service companies, forestry, construction companies fail to pay its workers FNPF contributions, despite the deductions being listed on payslips.

“Keep checking and let us know so that our team can follow-up with the employers,” he said.
