Termination Requirements

Terminations must respect complex rules and the rules of an employee’s employment country. The off-boarding is always handled by the Employer with the primary stakeholders. It may include ad-hoc fees as well as required or recommended steps on specific termination cases.

Terminations in Armenia can be complex. There is no at-will termination in Armenia for employers and termination must be done for just cause.

Compliant terminations include:

  • By mutual agreement

    • Disciplinary dismissal
    • Performance due to unsuitability for the job

  • 49 days if the length of service is 10-15 years

Severance for Employees

In Armenia, severance depends on the type of termination and length of employment.

All employees who are terminated due to the following are entitled to severance pay of 1 month:

  • Liquidation of the organization
  • Reduction of the number and staff
  • Changes in production volumes and the conditions of economic and work organization

Employees terminated for reasons related to compulsory military service, long-term disability, old age, or significant changes in working conditions will have variable severance based on the length of employment between 10 - 44 working days.

To protect you from unforeseen financial risks arising from terminations, Deel applies a Severance Accrual to all employment agreements in this country.  Deel has extensive expertise in managing litigation risk globally and our Severance Accrual calculation is based on the prevailing common-law or statutory entitlements and local best practices. In the event your employee resigns or is not entitled to severance, all unused amounts will be returned to you.
