Employers may terminate an employment contract for economic or business reasons, or depending on the employee's behaviour or performance. Employers are required to tell employees in writing. Two weeks or two months' notice is required, depending on the reason for termination. During the probationary term, only three days' notice is required.
Dismissals due to redundancy and employee misconduct are subject to special norms and processes.
In most cases, when an employer terminates an employment contract for a cause other than the employee's wrongdoing, severance compensation must be provided.
The notice period, as well as the circumstances and amounts payable under the employment contract's termination benefits and other compensation, are specified in the employment contract. The notice period varies between a half and a full month.
Severance or redundancy pay ranges from half a month's salary to two months' salary, depending on the length of employment.
Probationary periods for employees cannot exceed three months and six months for managerial employees.
