The labour code of Cameroon 1992 in its section 33(1) states that the employer shall be bound to pay the worker compensation equal either to that payable in lieu of notice or to the remuneration to which the worker would have been entitled during his absence whichever is the lesser in the case of a contract of employment of unspecified duration.

Some collective agreements have gone beyond the requirements of the labour code to grant better conditions for the workers.
