The Kenya National Housing Development Fund (NHDF) implementation delayed

On Monday, 27 May 2019, the implementation of the NHDF levy has been extended by the Employment and Labour Relations Court, barring the government from implementing the disputed 1.5% housing levy.

The housing levy was to take effect in May following a public notice by the government in April ordering employers to deduct and remit the levy by the 9th of every succeeding month.

The case was initially filed by Central Organisations of Trade Unions (Cotu). The case was also filed by various other parties that include, Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU), Trade Union Congress of Kenya, Consumers Federation of Kenya (CoFeK) and the Federation of Kenyan Employers (FKE) challenging the levy.

Further development will be closely monitored, and you will be kept informed.
