At one time it will be in the central government and at another it may be in different ministries and even the councils sometimes. The strategic position assumed to be occupied by the financial rewards in the relationship between the workers and their organizations aroused the curiosity of the researcher to such extent that he decided to find out the effect of delayed payment of salaries and wage on the performance of employees, using the ministry of education as case study.
