Employee Rights in Nigeria

In the last couple of weeks, we have noticed a surge in the number of queries we are receiving for employment related issues. These include — non payment of salaries, workplace harassment, unfair dismissals, and non-remittance of taxes and pension contributions.

We have noticed this trend and are working on making legal information around this area more accessible, specifically by creating our employment chatbot to help in answering the questions that come up. We are hoping to launch the chatbot in the near future. In the meantime, we will just share some of the articles that explain your rights in these situations, please read and share with your network and friends…you never know who might need it.

Legal Term of the Week: ‘Employment Bonds’- an agreement which the company and the employee enter into which among the other terms contained therein states that in consideration of the training given to the Employee and the money spent by the company in imparting such training, the Employee will remain in the services of the company for a particular period. In case the Employee breaches the provisions of the Agreement, the Employee will be liable to pay a certain sum of money.
