CNSS urges employers, school founders, and directors notably, to register their employees

(Togo First) - Togo’s national social security fund (CNSS) urges employers, especially school directors and founders, to get their employees registered. It also reminded them of the importance of paying, in full, their due social security contributions (respectively 17% and 4% for employers and employees). 

The registration of companies and their employees is a legal obligation and fundamental right consecrated by convention 102 of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the universal declaration of human rights, Togolese constitution and social security code,” the fund recalls. 

The reminder follows a control that revealed irregularities regarding staff size and figures used to determine social security contribution base.

Following its control, the CNSS found that school founders and directors are those failing the most in the obligation of paying social security contributions.

Employers must register at the CNSS within a period of eight (8) days starting from the day they open or acquire their institution. It is also compulsory, under law, for the employer to declare all employees, regardless of the nature, form, validity of the contract binding them, and the wage paid. Therefore, all teachers or lecturers, permanent, independent or temporary, without exception must be declared at the CNSS,” the public institution further indicated.
