Employment termination

Termination process

Macanese law stipulates that an employer can dismiss a worker at will as long as they’re paid any applicable severance benefits.

Notice period

If there’s no notice period stated in the employment contract, an employee can quit with seven days’ notice while an employer can dismiss a worker with 15 days’ notice. If the contract is ended for just cause, there’s no requirement to provide any prior notice.

Severance pay

Workers are entitled to severance benefits if they’re dismissed without cause. Severance payments are calculated based on how long the worker has been employed, as shown below:

Up to one year - 7 days

One to three years - 10 days

Three to five years - 13 days

Five to seven years - 15 days

Seven to eight years - 16 days

Eight to nine years - 17 days

Nine to ten years - 18 days

More than ten years - 20 days

Probation periods

Limited to 30 days for temporary contracts and 90 days for indefinite contracts.
