Is CPF payable on the payment by a prospective employer to offset the Salary-in-lieu of Notice/Notice Pay (or "Buyoff/Buyout") that a prospective employee has to pay his current employer?

CPF contribution is payable if the prospective employer pays to the prospective employee the Salary-in-lieu/Notice Pay that the latter is required to pay to his current employer in order to commence employment for the prospective employer.
CPF contribution is not payable if the prospective employer pays the Salary-in-lieu/Notice Pay directly to the prospective employee's current employer, and the payment is not included in the employment contract with the prospective employee.
