President Muhammadu Buhari has signed the N30,000 Minimum Wage bill into law after so many expectations from people.
This was made known today by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, stating that the Act makes it compulsory for all employers across the country to pay workers a minimum of N30,000.
Ita Enang further said that the act however excludes persons employing less than 25 workers or persons in other kinds of regulated employment.
The minimum wage Act gives workers the right to sue an employer to recover the balance.
It also give a worker the right to authorize the Minister of Labour to take action against an employer that refuses to pay salaries.
