d) In cases where laborers terminate their labor contracts in contravention of law, as prescribed in Clause 2, Article 41 of the amended and supplemented Labor Code.
2. At the sub-clause (b), clause 2, Section III of the Circular 21/2003/TT-BLDTBXH dated September 22, 2003 of the Ministry Of Labour, War Invalids And Social Affairs regulating that the employees leaving their jobs to enjoy the monthly pension regime as stipulated in clause 1 and clause 2 of Article 145 of the Labor Code are not paid severance allowances.
Therefore, current legal regulations does not regulated that labors terminate labor contracts right to the current regulations and receive onetime social insurance allowance regime for not having full conditions to enjoy monthly pension regime (in accordance with clause 3, Article 145 of the Labor Code) will not be paid severance allowances. So employers will
be responsible for paying severance allowances to labors in accordance
