SSNIT takes defaulting 27 managing directors to court
The Accra Circuit Court has issued bench warrants for the arrest of managing directors (MDs) and heads of 27 institutions and companies for allegedly defaulting in the payment of Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contributions of their employees.
The defaulters have allegedly also refused to fulfil negotiated terms between them and SSNIT for the settlement of their indebtedness, amounting to GH¢605,513.91.
The refusal of the defaulters to pay the SSNIT contributions of their staff contravenes the National Pension Act of 2008, Act 766, which empowers SSNIT to institute criminal charges against them.
