KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The South East Regional Health Authority (SERHA) says it is experiencing challenges paying over its staff’s salary deductions.




It’s response follows what it says was a letter from the Jamaica Association of Local Government Officers, JALGO, with a deadline for the payments.



According to SERHA's acting board chairman, Dr. Andrei Cooke, the payments are being made.



However, he says SERHA is having problems paying over the deductions to the various financial institutions on time.



Cooke says SERHA is working with the Health and Finance ministries to address the long standing issue.



In April, SERHA conceded that it had not been paying over the deductions from employees to their banks and other lending institutions.
