Termination should be done through official letter with 90 days termination period

An employer or company has no right to verbally terminate any employee for any reason, Acting Director of the Public Authority for Manpower Abdullah Al-Mutawtah said.

The labor law in the private sector stipulates that termination should be done through an official letter signed by the employer and has a specified date, while an employee is given the legal 90 days’ termination period, he explained.

“Verbal termination is a violation of the labor law, and such practice is subject to punishment according to the law,” he explained.
