Generally, fixed-term contracts of up to 2 years are allowed and may be renewed once. If the fixed-term contract is for more than 3 months, it must be in writing.

Although not legally required for indefinite term contracts, it is best practice to put a written employment contract in place in Cameroon, 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 Cameroon should always state the salary and any compensation amounts in Central Africa CFA francs rather than a foreign currency.

40 hours per week.

In general, employees are eligible to accrue 1 1/2 days of leave for each month of work. After 5 years of service, employees are eligible to receive an additional 2 days per month.  Workers who have accumulated more than 12 days of leave may split up their leave, but one portion must equal 12 continuous working days.

Workers are also generally eligible to receive 10 days of paid leave for family events.

Mothers with children under 6, are generally eligible for 2 additional days of leave for each child who lives in the home, or 1 day if the mother’s accrued leave does not exceed 6 days.

Employees are generally entitled to at least 5 days of paid sick leave per year.

If an employee is injured or becomes ill at work, the employer is responsible for paying for medical treatment.

Female employees are generally entitled to 14 weeks of paid maternity leave, with 4 weeks to be taken before the birth or 6 weeks if her doctor orders confinement.  Maternity leave is paid for by the National Social Insurance Fund.

Fathers can use their 10 days of paid family leave for paternity leave.

Probationary periods of up to 6 months are allowed, and the agreement must be in writing. Managerial staff are generally entitled to an 8-month probationary period. If the employee continues to work after the probationary period, but no contract is drawn up, that employee is considered to have a permanent position.

Fixed-term contracts may only be terminated for reasons of gross misconduct, force majeure, or written consent of both parties.

Indefinite-term contracts can be terminated at any time by either the employer or the employee. Notice of termination must be given, the duration of which is set by the Minister in charge of Labor and is based on the seniority and the occupational group of the employee. During the notice period, the employee is generally entitled to one day off per week to look for another job.

Employees who have worked for at least 2 years are generally entitled to severance pay; the amount of pay is determined by the Minister in charge of Labor.

Employees pay personal income taxes of between 10% and 35%.
