The Controller and Accountant’s General Department has upgraded it’s Electronic Platform. (E-Payslip). Bringing a whole lot of issues at hand.
Some issues realised earlier were.
1. Inability to login to the portal.
2. Inaccurate affordability.
3. Inability to Change union.
And many other issues.
Currently on our social media handle we have seen complaints coming in, indicating some of the issues are still standing unsolved. With some of our employees who cannot still login and others who have their affordability at 0.00.
What is still surfacing on social media.
It’s been alleged that, in order not to pay salary arrears owed teachers from 2012, their Date Of Employment have been changed to the date that they received their first salary. This has been effected and reflected in the e-payslip portal.
For example, teachers with appointment letters in 2012 or 2013 and started receiving salary in 2014 have their date of employment as 2014 on the e-payslip portal.
This does not only mean that the salary arrears have been written off. It also means that their promotions will be delayed and and their social security will be reduced.
If you are a teacher employed around 2012/2013, check your date of employment on the e-payslip and compare it with your appointment letter to know if you have not been affected.
How to check.
Go to e-payslip, if you can login.
click on My Affordability and check your Date Of Employment there.
If such issues are seen as a matter of urgency see your management head and also try reporting to the Controller and Accountant’s General Department in your District.
We hope to believe it’s not a planned effort to write off the salary arears but just a technical error.
There are too many issues rising with this new E-payslip .
We have also seen in the Previous months the over tax salary and deduction that came in.
It’s Christmas and most institutions have given some small tokens to their workers to take home for ”Bronya”, that can not be said about GES workers, rather underpayment.
40% of Ghana Education Service Staff workers have not received their two months salary increment arrears and 20% for Ghana health Service Staff.
According to some workers on our social media platform, they have seen the payment of the arrears in the portal and on their payslip but as they went to the Bank to check their balance, it did not reflect as such.
The controller and Accountant’s General issued a release it will be paying the affected workers their last two months arrears next month, adding it to their January Salary.
