The fate of public sector workers is in limbo as salaries for the month of January of about 14, 000 civil servants in the Greater Accra Region will be delayed due to the failure of unit heads to validate and certify employees for January, 2015.
The Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) has however given an opportunity to the Heads of Departments and Management Units in the region who did not validate their employees to do so between Monday, January 26 to Tuesday, January 27, 2015.
This, according to the CAGD will enable it prepare a supplementary payroll for the affected employees for payment by February, 2015.
The Controller however indicated that all employees on the mechanized payroll have been paid their salaries for January, 2015.
The CAGD in a bid to clean up the payroll system introduced an online Payment Voucher Validation System.
