For permanent contracts, it is best practice to put a strong, written employment contract in place in Burkina Faso, in the local language, which spells out the terms of the employee’s compensation, benefits, and termination requirements. An offer letter and employment contract in Burkina Faso should always state the salary and any compensation amounts in West African CFA francs rather than a foreign currency.
