Unless an employer can demonstrate a compelling reason for dismissal without notice (for example, owing to misbehavior, disobedience, lack of expertise, disregard of responsibilities, or absence without authorization), written notice is needed.
The notice period is determined by the length of employment of the employee. Employees who have worked for more than two weeks to six months will be given a week's notice. After six months to two years of work, there will be a two-week notice period. Employees with more than two years to five years of service will receive a four-week notice period. Finally, employees who have worked for the company for more than five years will be entitled to an eight-week notice period.
If the employee has worked for the company for five to ten years, the severance pay will be one week's wage for each year of service completed. If the employee has worked for the company for more than ten years, the severance pay will be two weeks' pay for each year of service.
The probation period is fixed at two weeks.
