Cameroon government declares 175 job-placement companies to be in breach of the law

Cameroonian Employment Minister, Zacharie Pérevet, just released a list of 175 temporary employment companies and private job-placement officers operating in total illegality. According to the cabinet member, these companies either no longer have valid authorisation or are simply operating clandestinely.

Minister Pérévet has urged, “The heads of companies that use temporary labour to cease all professional relations with the organisations implicated in this issue.” He is also threatening to impose fines on the employment agencies in question if the latter fail to comply with regulations in effect.

Illegality is visibly pervasive among employment companies in Cameroon. Indeed, in September 2014, the Minister of Employment had already identified 150 temporary employment companies and private job-placement offices that were skipping around the regulations. The brandishing of threats of fines seems to have had little effect.
