Refund fraudulent salaries or face the law – Fair Wages warns ahead of nationwide payroll monitoring exercise.

The Fair Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) has announced that starting next month it will embark on a Nationwide Payroll Monitoring Exercise aimed at cleaning up the public sector payroll.

The exercise, according to the Commission, will be carried out in collaboration with relevant stakeholders.

In a public notice issued by the Public Affairs Unit of the Commission, the exercise will identify and expunge any existing fraud and anomalies in the public sector payroll.

“It is also aimed at ensuring that only approved salaries and allowances are paid,” the notice said.

Ahead of the exercise, the Commission has called on all boards and councils as well as heads of public sector institutions “to conduct their own internal payroll audit and clean-up ahead of that of the Commission”.

“This exercise should cover basic salaries and all types of allowances and benefits.

“By this communication, banks and individuals in receipt of fraudulent salaries and allowances are also advised to take steps to refund same and cease from further fraudulent practices or face the full rigours of the law.”
