Employment In Jordan
The employment and Jordan labor laws are applicable to citizens of the country and foreign nationals. Here are the essential aspects to comprehend employment in Jordan that must be kept in mind while planning to expand your business in Jordan.
For setting up any business entity in Jordan, it is necessary to comply with Jordan’s employment laws. These regulations are standard and in line with the regulations of other countries, even though they appear to be a little complex. The best way to manage the challenges concerning employment in Jordan is to collaborate or partner with a local payroll provider who possesses thorough knowledge about Jordan's laws for foreign workers and local workers.
Here are some of the benefits and entitlements for employees in Jordan:
The Jordanian labor laws have many more sections that lay down rules about employer and employee relationships. To ensure that your hiring process is compliant with the obligatory laws, speak to Skuad’s experts today to learn more about employment in Jordan.
Contractors Vs. Full-Time Employees
Under the employment contract law in Jordan, there are 2 types of contracts:
A fixed-term contract has a maximum period of five years, while the indefinite is self-explanatory.
Hiring a contractor in Jordan means that you are hiring a worker who operates independently, manages their entity, serves based on either a contract or a project, and could even work for multiple clients or companies. It means they could self-pay their taxes and are not a part of the employer’s payroll.
However, hiring a full-time employee means you hire a worker through an employment agreement in Jordan and the individual works full-time for one company and receives mandatory employment benefits. It means they are a part of the employer’s payroll. Full-time employees are hired when they are expected to meet long-term goals, need to be closely supervised, when the business needs timely reporting. Such employees enjoy the benefits like commitment to the company’s vision, loyalty, and contribution to the company’s growth.
The employment contracts in Jordan usually come into play when the cost is low, such as payment of taxes, administration, benefits, and when employers desire advantages like flexibility, specialized skills, and less propensity for lawsuits.

Probation & Termination
Probation and termination are two crucial factors governed by the Labor Laws of Jordan. The probationary period in Jordan is in place to grant aid to employees and avoid exploitation.
The labor laws give the right to both parties to mutually agree on a probation period. Both the parties have to agree on the probation period in writing; this period is crucial to test the competencies and skills of a worker and for a worker to decide whether he accepts the work expected by him. However, the standard probation period in Jordan should not exceed three months or ninety days under any circumstances.
Termination of service
Termination of Employment contract
Section 21 of the Jordan Labor code deals with termination of employment. According to this section, a contract is considered terminated if:
- Both parties are in agreement to terminate it.
- The contract has expired, or the work is completed.
- Death, or if the worker is incapable of performing the work due to disability or disease, provided this is certified by a medical authority.
In case of an indefinite employment contract, one-month advance notice must be served to the employee to terminate the contract. However, there is no need for prior notice for the termination of a contract in some cases. Those circumstances are as follows:
- Assumption of fake identity and submission of fake certificates.
- Failure to fulfill contractual obligations.
- Material damage to the employer.
- Failure to adhere to internal regulations despite two warnings.
- Absence from work for more than twenty days without any cause or prior notice.
- Disclosure of work secrets.
- Being guilty of criminal offenses or immoral conduct.
- Being intoxicated or under the influence of drugs at work.
- Insulting or striking at fellow employees and authority.

PEO vs. EOR
A Professional Employer Organisation (PEO) is a company that associates with both small and medium-scale companies to offer HR services. When a company works with a PEO, the HR department is outsourced to provide expert services at affordable charges.
If a company doesn't prefer to outsource the HR function, EOR services are another option to consider. In global EOR services, the EOR is the legal employer of the workers, whereas, with a PEO, the company is in a co-employment relationship with the PEO.
For working with a PEO as a company, you will need to first establish your legal presence wherever you have your employees. But if you are established beyond boundaries, you can hire employees legally through EOR services. There are no fixed criteria to decide; the choice depends on your business requirements.
Skuad offers both types of services. Talk to us and tell us your requirements and let us help you choose between our EOR solution and PEO services.
