Gambia: Three S Security Guards Will Receive Redress At SSHFC

The guards working for the 3s security services who lodged their complaints to Foroyaa that the company has not been paying the Social Security dues to Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation even though some of them have been working with the company for nearly 15 years, have their case been looked into by the SSHFC.

The workers have also mentioned low salaries and the company's lack of observance of public holidays which they reported to the department of Labour.

The Senior Recovery Manager at the Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation said they have made their findings and have consulted the 3s company and the company management said to them that they have been forcing their employees to fill the social security forms but they refused to fill them.

He later revealed that after their investigation they have contacted the said security company and informed this reporter that the company now agrees to pay social security for all their staff from the date of their employment.

The Department of Labour was also visited to find out how far they have progressed with the workers' complaints but the acting commissioner of Labour Mr. Barrow said they are investigating the matter and would get back to this reporter as soon as they are done.
