Corrections:

3. Social Insurance Fund (Social Security Scheme - SOCSO): Foreign employees must contribute
PERKESO (SOCSO) is not available for foreign workers. Foreign workers are/MUST be covered by separate "Group/Individual" Insurance Scheme approved by the Labor Department/ Immigration Department.

7. Foreign employees and their employers must make a home.
Employers must provide lodging facilities to foreign workers.
