It is legally required to put a written employment contract in place in Guinea, 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 Guinea should always state the salary and any compensation amounts in Guinean francs rather than a foreign currency.

Employers must contribute 18% of payroll to social security and employees must contribute 5%.

Employers may terminate employees for “personal reasons” including ineptitude, ill health, or misconduct. The employer must summon the employee to an interview with at least 5 days notice by registered letter and must include the reasons for wanting to dismiss the employee.  The employer must wait 2 days after the interview before dismissing the employee. Such dismissal must be made by hand-delivered letter within three days of the interview.

  • operational staff: 2 weeks
