Severance is typically required in Lebanon. However, other payments may be required in certain specific circumstances. Please contact us with any questions.
Minimum notice periods (for both employer and employee) will depend on duration of employment:
Lebanon law protects employees from illegal termination of employment, and as there are a range of reasons an employee can be terminated, it’s important for those looking to employ in Lebanon to reach out to us directly with questions.
Laws around employees who have specific termination protections, or classes of employees who have protected characteristics relevant to discrimination, are highly complex and there can be a number of situation-specific variables. If you have questions in this area, please reach out to us directly to discuss.
