Employment termination in Lithuania

Termination process

The employee must be notified in writing of their specific shortcomings in performance, the parties must have concluded a performance improvement plan for two months, and the employee must have failed to fulfill the plan.

We advise that the following documents be prepared to complete a termination due to non-performance: termination notice, notice explaining performance shortcomings, and a written performance improvement plan.

Notice period

After completing a year of employment, employees are entitled to one month’s notice period. This is reduced to just two months for workers who have been employed for less than a year.

Special considerations are made for:

  • adoptive parents of children below 14

  • disabled employees

  • parents raising disabled children below 18

  • employees due to retire in two years or less

The aforementioned category of employees is entitled to three times the standard notice period to help them plan as to any disruption a termination may create in their lives.

Severance pay

Severance packages range from one month’s wages for workers who have been employed for an entire year, to six months’ wages for workers who have worked with their employer for up to 20 years.

Probation periods

There are no provisions for mandatory probation periods in Lithuania, but otherwise, it’s a widespread practice and typically lasts around three months.
