Enjoyment of Statutory Employee Rights? A Myth or a Reality in Ghana?

Majoreen Osafroadu Amankwah, Olivia Anku-Tsede


This study used empirical evidence to examine the extent of compliance with various labour regulations amongst private and public sector organisations. The study was conducted in Accra with data collected from 126 respondents between the period June and December, 2012. Accra was selected because it seats the headquarters of most organisations, where the HR unit is usually stationed. The study provided in-depth insight into the nature and extent of the violations of employee rights in Ghana. It suggests that whilst most HR managers complied with most of the provisions of the Labour Act, some provisions were ignored, in spite of its consequences. The findings of this study would help policy makers and regulators provide an effective mechanism to protect employee rights and ensure an effective compliance with labour regulations.
