Employment termination

Termination process

Employers can generally terminate workers at will by providing advance notice and making any required severance payments. This provision only employees to regular employees as workers on probation can be dismissed summarily.

Notice periods are determined by either collective agreement or on a case-by-case basis (i.e. independently agreed upon by employers and their employees).

Severance pay

Severance payments under Salvadoran law is usually a month’s pay for every year worked.

Probation periods

Probation periods are limited to 30 days.
