The data collected constitute the sources from which the law is drawn, stated and analysed in light of the stated aim of the article The article argues that in Cameroon the legal mechanism used to regulate labour dispute settlement in the private sector is very fragile and so does not effectively handle labour disputes.The relevance of the article lies in the fact that it addresses issues of law that affect employees, employers and trade unions as it enables them to be aware of the plight of workers and to explore effective strategies for dispute settlement.
