Labour Law: Principles and Practice in Cameroon

There is a dearth of well researched books on important disciplines in law written by Cameroonians. This regrettable situation has invariably meant a reliance of substantive and practice books written mostly by Nigerian and English writers. While books written by these writers have been helpful, they have not always captured the peculiarities and judicial attitudes of the Cameroonian context. When approached from the perspective of practice in the Anglophone regions, not even Cameroonian writers of French orientation have done justice to this situation. This book contributes to filling this gap. It is a comprehensive review that combines an analysis of the principles and basic procedure of labour law in Cameroon. Yanou draws on solid academic research as well as a wide ranging experience in legal practice across Cameroon and Nigeria to present a coherent and practical elaboration of themes such as employment, dismissal, remedies for wrongful dismissal, compensation for industrial injuries, and trade unions. The book is also motivated by the desire for a repository for members of the Bar and Bench, judges, academics, students and human resources practitioners.

"When a business is sold by one employer to another, or the responsibility for providing a service transfers from one employer to another, what happens to the dedicated workforce? Do the employees concerned have the right to work for the new employer? And if so, do they retain the contractual and other employment rights that they enjoyed prior to the transfer, or is the new employer entitled to vary their contracts in order to harmonise their terms and conditions with those of any existing employees? These are the main issues with which the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 SI 2006/246 (TUPE) - the focus of this Handbook - are concerned."--Back cover.
