The Labor Law prohibits an employer from dismissing an employee for the following reasons:

  • The employee joins in matrimony;
  • The employee is absent due to illness for less than 12 months consecutively;
  • The employee performs a role in a trade union.

Notice Period

Probationary employees are given up to 30 days of notice period. On the other hand, employees after probation are given up to 3 months.

Severance Pay

Depending on the reasons for employment termination, employers need to pay standard severance, long service pay, compensation pay, and/or separation pay.
