Employment termination

Termination process

Employees can be terminated with just cause, for reasons such as dishonesty, negligence, fraud, or any other work-related offences, and although the managerial staff can be dismissed at will, a severance package is mandated by law.

Notice period

An employer must provide at least 30 days’ notice of an employee’s termination.

Severance pay

Employees dismissed for business reasons (e.g., redundancy) are entitled to a severance package equivalent to a month’s wages, while employees guilty of violating their contract or other serious offences won’t be entitled to severance pay.
