Ghanaian employers flouting pensions law

Only one in five employers registered with the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) has also signed on to a second-tier pension scheme, which is mandatory, Laud Senanu, acting chief executive of the National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA), has said. Speaking to the B&FT on the sidelines of a regional outreach programme of the NPRA in Kumasi, Mr. Senanu said the situation is worrying given what has gone into educating the public and workings of the scheme.
