The contract of employment confers on the parties certain reciprocal rights and obligations which they will have to respect in the execution of their agreement. These obligations may be express or implied in whatever form the parties may choose to record in their contract.
The reciprocal obligations of the employer and the worker originate from statute and collective agreements more often than from the contract of employment itself. Any terms written in line with the obligations of the parties in a contract of employment in Cameroon can only add to statutory and conventional provisions and will take the lead provided it appears more favourable to the worker.
Hence, obligations of the parties to a contract of employment in Cameroon will appear to be more implied than express. These obligations and duties are applicable during the pendency of the contract of employment and even after the termination of same.
