The National Insurance Law guarantees that migrants, asylum seekers, and Palestinians employed by Israeli employers will receive insurance coverage through the Israeli National Insurance Institute (NII) – though the degree to which they receive benefits is dependent on their residency or visa status – with regard to 1) work accidents, 2) employer bankruptcy or closure, and 3) pregnancy and maternity costs, and 4) child welfare.

This report deals with the structure, management, and enforcement of the rights that the NII is legally required to provide to these three categories of workers. After assessing issues in the NII database that impose hardships upon non-Israeli workers, this report then examines in-depth the inadequate handling of work accident-related insurance claims and maternity insurance claims on the part of the NII.
