Employment termination in Mauritius

Termination process

Employee contracts can be terminated if a just cause is established, such as dishonesty, negligence, fraud, or any other work-related offenses. Otherwise, employees must be informed in advance if the decision is business inclined.

Notice period

Mauritian employees are entitled to a minimum 30 day notice period. Longer notice periods may be stipulated in employment agreements, but this figure can not be less than 30 days. Employees who’ve been employed for three years or more are entitled to three months of advance notice.

Severance pay

Severance payments are calculated based on an employee’s tenure and the justification behind a termination.

If termination is justified because of an employee’s actions, the severance package will be equal to a quarter of a month’s wages multiplied by the number of years the employee has worked. Otherwise, for unjustified (or purely economic) terminations, the severance pay is equal to three months’ wages paid for each year the employee has served with the employer.

Probation periods

Probation periods can last anywhere from three to six months, or as long as required, depending on the length of the employment contract.
