The Republic of Guinea is experiencing a considerable acceleration of its economic and social development, due to the abundance of natural resources. Guinea is characterised by a large workforce of its youth and a high demand for infrastructures and services, leading many foreign investors to converge here.

According to Section 221.1 of the Labor Code Law of Guinea: All private establishments must ensure that the actual working hours of employees are around forty hours.
The employer and the employee can agree on an employment contract for a duration of less than forty hours, this contract is then considered a part-time employment contract.
The employer can also enact more than forty hours per week on the employee by applying the rules of equivalence, recovery, modulation, or overtime.
Section 152.1 of the Labor Code states that the employment contract of an employee who is the victim of a work accident or an occupational disease is suspended for the duration of the work stoppage caused by the accident or disease. A commuting accident is also considered an accident at work for the purposes of these provisions.
The employer is required to make declarations to the relevant body for Social Security, and to inform the labor inspector of occupational accidents and diseases body within forty-eight hours of their occurrence. Failing which, the employer will bear the costs of treatment related to the work accident or occupational disease.
The length of the suspension periods is considered when determining any legal or contractual benefits related to seniority in the company.

Article 153.1 states that female employees have the right to suspend the employment contract for a period (which begins six weeks before the expected date of childbirth and ends eight weeks after the date of delivery). It is, in any case, prohibited to employ women within six weeks of their expected delivery date.
When the childbirth takes place before the expected date, the period of suspension of the employment contract may be extended.

This suspension is unable to exceed a total of eight weeks before the expected date of delivery and ten weeks after.
