A lawful termination of employment is subject to various requirements, one of which is that the employer must produce a written copy of any grounds for the termination. Termination is legal if an employee is unable to fulfill the job's required responsibilities to a reasonable standard of performance; if an employee engages in unacceptable workplace behavior; or if an employer's operational requirements are lessened.
You must offer a one-week notice to any employee who has been with you for less than a year. A two-week notice time is required if you have worked for less than three years, and a four-week notice period is required if you have worked for more than five years.
If you the employer initiates an immediate termination, they may provide severance in lieu of notice. By the end of the next workday, the employer must pay all wages and benefits due, including any accrued but unused annual leave.
There are no provisions in the Kiribati law regarding probationary period.
