Overtime laws in Moldova are complex and can depend on the specific circumstances and the employee. We are happy to discuss this in more detail for a specific context.
Employees in Moldova are entitled to 28 days’ paid leave plus paid holidays. Additional annual leave depends on the length of service.
Sick leave in Moldova includes paid leave for up to 180 days, extendable up to 30 days in certain circumstances. The first 5 days are paid by the employer. After that, the social insurance fund covers 60% of the employee’s average monthly earnings within the last year if they have contributed to social insurance for less than 5 years. 70% of the employee’s average monthly earnings are paid if they have contributed to social insurance for 5-8 years. Anything more than 8 years calls for 90% average monthly earnings to be paid.
Moldova’s maternity leave regulations include 70 days’ paid leave before birth and 56 days after birth. Employees are also eligible for partially paid maternity leave until the child is 3.
Female employees with 2 or more children under 14 are entitled to 4 additional days paid leave.
Unpaid leave is permissible for family reasons up to 60 days. Employees with 2 or more children up to 14 or disabled children up to 16 receive 14 days’ unpaid leave.
We believe that remote employees should be able to access their local benefits, as well as high-standard international benefits, anywhere they are. Details about international or country specific benefit packages can be provided on request. Please contact us for further details.
Severance is typically required in Moldova, unless in case of redundancy. However, other payments may be required in certain specific circumstances. Please contact us with any questions.
Employees may resign on 14 days’ notice. Employees are entitled to 1 month’s notice (due to qualifications or poor performance) and 2 months for liquidation or redundancy.
Moldova 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 Moldova 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.
