Employment termination in Algeria

Termination process

Employment contracts can either be terminated by redundancy or for misconduct and in the latter case, disciplinary options must be considered before an employee is let go. Under Algerian law, terminating an employee without trying to reform them via disciplinary action would constitute unfair dismissal and make you liable to pay them severance compensation.

Notice period

Notice periods in Algeria are structured based on an employee’s skill level and tenure.

General employees are typically entitled to six months’ prior notice plus five days for each year of service, capped at 30 extra days, i.e., six months and 30 days (seven months) maximum for general staff.

Managerial staff are entitled to 12 months’ prior notice plus five days for each year of employment, capped at 30 extra days or roughly 13 months total.

Severance pay

Employees are entitled to a severance package if they’re dismissed without notice or due to liquidation or redundancy.

The basic severance pay is equal to one month’s pay and in addition, employees let go for redundancy or a business liquidation must be paid their salaries for two months, or until they find new employment.

Probation periods

Probation periods can last anywhere from six months for general staff, to 12 months for managerial positions.
