Effects of the Implementation of the Employees’ Compensation Act in Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) Abuja, Nigeria


    This study examines the effect of implementing the Employees' Compensation Act in the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) located in Abuja, Nigeria. The study assesses how the implementation of this Act affects the well-being of workers within the FIRS in Abuja. A total of 399 employees from the FIRS in Abuja participated in the survey. The findings of the study indicate that the respondents lack awareness regarding the compensation act within the FIRS. Additionally, the majority of the respondents expressed disagreement with the adequacy of compensation for FIRS employees who experience work-related disabilities. On the other hand, most respondents agreed that employees suffering from work-related mental stress are adequately compensated within the FIRS. One of the recommendations put forth is for the FIRS to establish effective communication strategies to ensure that all employees have a clear understanding of their rights and the compensation provisions available to them in cases of work-related disabilities. Achieving this objective could involve organizing regular workshops, training sessions, and informative campaigns.
