Peru 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 Peru 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.
