Employment termination in Nepal

Termination process

Employers can dismiss employees for poor performance, conviction for a criminal charge, medical incapacity, the expiration of their contract, or serious misconduct such as getting violent at work, fraud, theft, taking unapproved leave of up to 30 days, and falsifying documents.

Employees should generally be notified of a pending termination at least seven days in advance so they can offer an explanation for their behaviour; on the other hand, terminations for misconduct are effective immediately.

Notice period

The notice period depends on how long an employee has been working:

  • Up to four week: one day

  • From four weeks to one year: seven days

  • More than one year: 30 days

Severance pay

Nepali workers are only entitled severance payments if they’re not eligible for unemployment benefits, in which case the employer has to pay the employee a month’s salary for every year they’ve been employed.

Upon dismissal, an employer must pay the employee the cash value of any unused leave they’ve accrued.

Probation periods

Limited to six months.
