BOR RESORT, Moscow Region, October 4 (Itar-Tass) - Migrant workers will begin to pay fees to the Social Insurance Fund beginning in 2015 to finance sick leave and will not be included in the system of mandatory health insurance, Russian Labour and Social Protection Minister Maxim Topilin told the United Russia party congress.
Russia's government had prepared draft laws that also required employers to pay for voluntary health insurance for foreign workers at a rate determined by the government, he said.
The regulations were unlikely to be passed in 2014 since discussion and approval would take much time, but they were expected to be introduced from 2015, Topilin said.
