(Business in Cameroon) - Alain Noël Olivier Mekulu Mvondo, the Director General of the National Social Security Fund (CNPS), announced yesterday that homeowners are now required to CFA7,000 per month for the social security of their domestic workers.
This amount, which according to the official “is not too much”, should ensure social coverage for domestic workers, most of whom are not registered and therefore unknown to the public pension fund. CNPS is announcing controls and adjustments after September.
According to the organization, the registration and payment of social contributions are a legal, social and moral obligation toward the employees. It aims to safeguard their rights, especially for the benefit of social benefits provided by the CNPS (family allowances, coverage of occupational diseases and accidents, pensions ...).
