These rules will also apply to the employer if he terminates the contractual relationship with the worker,” the ministry said while clarifying the three situations under which the employee or the employer is entitled to compensation upon termination of the contractual relationship between the two parties. The ministry stated that in the event of terminating the contract for a legitimate reason and one of the parties does not comply with the notice period, material compensation shall be paid to the affected party, equal to the wages of the worker during the notice period. “In the event the contract is terminated for an unlawful reason and does not include a specific compensation and the duration of the contract is unlimited, a material compensation estimated at 15 days of wages shall be disbursed to the employee for each year of service, provided that the compensation is not less than two months of wages,” the ministry said.
