The National Pension Scheme Authority -NAPSA- has taken 18 employers to court in the past one week for failing to remit contributions from workers to the authority.
NAPSA Southern Region Manager Zephania Mpofu says the compliance level in Southern Province is not impressive especially at lodges.
Mr. Mpofu has warned employers in the province that they risk being prosecuted if they do not register their workers and subsequently remit funds to NAPSA.
He has told ZNBC News in Livingstone that NAPSA was established to safe-guard the interests of all employees in the country whether on permanent or temporary basis.
Mr. Mpofu explained that according to the Zambian law, everyone who is above the age of sixteen and less than fifty-five years gets a salary of above fifteen-Kwacha per month is supposed to be registered with NAPSA.
