Employment termination

Termination process

Employers can dismiss employees for serious misconduct, fraud, negligence, or inciting employees to hurt a company’s interests.

Notice period

Jordanian law prescribes at least one month’s notice except in the cases of severe misconduct. The law also specifies protected classes that cannot be dismissed or even notified of dismissal, such as:

  • Pregnant employees from the sixth month of pregnancy, and mothers on maternity leave

  • Workers taking leave for military or reserve service

  • Employees who’re on the annual leave, sick leave, or any leave voluntarily agreed upon by both parties

Severance pay

Jordanian law doesn’t explicitly provide for severance payments although employers must pay any due wages and make payments in lieu of any unused benefits at the time a worker is dismissed.

Terminated employees can file for damages and if found to be dismissed unfairly will be entitled to reinstatement or to be paid damages.

Probation periods

Limited to three months (90 days) and must be clearly stated in writing.
