SSC compliance inspections rolling
Rino Muranda, Manager Corporate Communication said that the inspections were vitally important to ensure that both employers and employees are covered and know what is on offer to protect their valued employees and themselves.
“During the Rundurura campaign integrated inspections, Compliance Officers ensure they know who the defaulters are. These types of inspections are generally aimed at collecting outstanding contributions and assessments. In other instances, compliance aims to register employees who have not been registered. Often we are also there to give advice as many people are not always 100% sure what they need to do and then we can assist and see that they and their companies are looked after,” he added. Muranda said, “through the Rundurura project the SSC also makes sure that employers and employees are aware of the benefits and that they comply with the Acts. He advised: “Initial figures for the South, Central North and the North reveal that for every 10 employers inspected by Compliance, 9 are already registered. This indicates a penetration rate of 90%. Despite employers being registered with the Commission, we are still registering large volumes of employees which we can attribute to the initiation of the Mass Housing Project.” The Social Security Commission’s officers have since the commencement of “Rundurura” in June, registered over 500 employees in the South, Central North and North and visited 532 employers in those regions.
