PRESS RELEASE
First of Its Kind: Complying with Ghana Labour Law Online

Ghanaian workers will for the first time be able to use an online system to launch complaints on minimum wage compliance at their workplaces. This innovation is made possible by the WageIndicator Foundation-Netherlands with support from the Trades Union Congress–Ghana, Ghana Employers Association, National Labour Commission,
Labour Department and Ghana Federation of Labour.

 

Today – May 1st 2014, all these partners join hands to launch this innovation to the general public. The Compliance Forms will be offered for use to members of the general public on its national websites Mywage.org/Ghana and Africapay.org/Ghana.
There are over 40 percent of workers particularly those in the informal sector who earn below the national minimum wage. Workers are also made to work excessively for long hours without overtime allowance. The objective of this online system is to make the
processes of complains alot more easier. It is also to help alleviate the plight of those working individuals who are in defiance of the law. The  Compliance Form will focus on the two most pressing problems working people face: i.e. non-payment of minimum wages and working too long hours.

The online procedure is simple. All one needs to do is to look up the form online, fill it up and submit it either to National Labour Commission or Labour Department whose addresses have been provided  or to the TUC for onward submission to the Labour Department. After perusal, all similar  complains will be compiled for the necessary
legal intervention to remedy the substantiated wrongs.
