END OF SERVICE GRATUITY:
In addition to any sums to which the worker is entitled to upon the expiry of his service, the employer shall pay the end of service gratuity to the worker who has completed employment of one year or more. This gratuity shall be agreed upon by the two parties, provided that it is not less than a three-week wage for every year of employment. The worker shall be entitled to gratuity for the fractions of the year in proportion to the duration of employment.
The worker’s service shall be considered continuous if it is terminated in cases other than those stipulated in article (61) of this Law and is returned to service within two months of its termination.
The last basic wage shall be the base for the calculation of the gratuity.
Q: How is the end of service benefits calculated?
You are entitled to end of service benefit, if you have been on the job for one year or more and for every year of service there on. The benefits can be negotiated by the two parties, provided it is not less than the salary of three weeks for every year of service. If there is a dispute about your years in service of your employer, you may file a lawsuit.
EMPLOYEE PERSONAL FILES:
The employer shall keep the said file for a period of AT LEAST ONE YEAR after the expiry date of the service of the worker with him. (Article # 47)
