Labour and Trade Relations

In August 1992 the Cameroon Labour Code was revised to meet the exigencies of an ambitious economic plan. In this new code, the liberalisation of the economy is further sanctified by the freedom of contract between the employer and the employee. Here the balance of favour is tilted to the greater advantage of the employer. At the same time, foreign business operators and foreign employees are greatly protected.
In 1998 the President of the Republic ratified a 1973 ILO convention concerning minimum age for admission to employment. Thus the minimum age for admission to employment throughout the national territory is now fixed at 14 years, this in consonance with the revised labour code. It has resulted in increase in the supply of labour and its attendant benefits to the employer.
