Answer

(Fatwa: 348/182/D=1432)

If the company does not deduct amount from the salary in the name of insurance in availing insurance and the employees of the company do not do any dealing by themselves, then it shall be gift and aid from the company for its employees. It shall be halal to gain from this scheme in illness.
