A new labour law comes into effect!

According to Ministry of Labour (MoL), a six-month labour ban will not be imposed to an employee IF the employee and employer mutually agreed to terminate their employment contract.

Limited period contracts
  • Terms of the contract has expired and not been renewed
  • Employee and employers mutually terminate the contract, provided the worker has completed a period of six months
  • Employer initiates the termination of the employment contract
Unlimited period contracts
  • The two parties mutually terminate contract, provided worker has completed 6 months
  • One of the parties acts to terminate the contract and notifies the other party
  • The employer terminates the contract for reasons other than non-compliance by the worker”
