News reports indicate that the Rwanda Social Security Board is owed in excess of Rfw10 billion by entrepreneurs and public entities in the country.
My appeal is for the defaulters is to pay up since workers’ savings are designed to provide a livelihood to families when their bread winners retire. The law clearly stipulates that an employer should remit eight percent of a worker’s salary to RSSB.
Therefore, defaulting employers should be followed up to ensure that workers’ savings are secured. Otherwise, this is detrimental to the future plans of many workers and their families.
Employers’ non-compliance to the law clearly shows that some employers do not have the welfare of their staff at heart.
