Ease of doing business in Lesotho

As per the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index for 2020, Lesotho sits at 122nd out of 190 countries—a rank that simultaneously highlights the country’s challenging business landscape and the potential opportunities it offers. 

Navigating the intricacies of local laws, language barriers, and cultural norms can be daunting; however, partnering with a reliable Employer of Record service like Breedj can dramatically simplify these complexities.

Hiring in Lesotho

If you’re an international business planning to expand your operations to Lesotho, you generally have two options. The first is to go through the long, often complicated process of establishing a local entity—something that can require considerable time and resources. The second, more efficient route is to opt for an Employer of Record service like Breedj. 

When you use our EOR service, you gain instant access to our comprehensive local knowledge and insights. This makes the hiring process much faster, and ensures that you remain in compliance with Lesotho’s employment laws. In short, you get to allocate your valuable resources where they’re most needed: growing your business and dominating the market.

Statutory labor laws in Lesotho

An in-depth understanding of local labor laws is essential for any business looking to succeed in Lesotho:

Employee Probation Period: Generally, a new hire in Lesotho is subject to a probationary period of three months. This period can be extended with mutual consent, allowing you to assess the employee’s suitability for long-term employment.

Annual Leave Entitlements: As per Lesotho’s labor laws, employees are entitled to at least 12 working days of paid annual leave after they’ve been employed for a continuous 12-month period.

Maternity Leave: Female workers have a right to 12 consecutive weeks of maternity leave, starting as early as four weeks before the child’s expected birth date. This ensures the wellbeing of both mother and child.

Paternity Leave: Although not statutorily required, some companies do offer paternity leave as an additional benefit to male employees.

Sick Leave: Employees are eligible for up to 12 days of paid sick leave annually, provided they’ve been in continuous service for at least one month.

By choosing Breedj as your Employer of Record in Lesotho, we take on the responsibility of ensuring your full compliance with these statutory laws, allowing you to concentrate on achieving your business goals.

Social security in Lesotho

Understanding and complying with Lesotho’s social security requirements is not just a legal necessity but also a crucial aspect of building a reliable, long-term operation in the country. Employers are mandated to contribute to the Lesotho National Social Security Fund, generally around 6% of an employee’s gross salary, while the employee contributes an equal percentage. These contributions go towards securing various benefits, such as pensions. 

At Breedj, we handle all facets of these social security contributions, from the initial registration to the monthly calculations and submissions. Our goal is to let you focus on your primary business activities, free from the administrative burdens related to social security compliance.

In summary, choosing Breedj’s EOR services is your gateway to a hassle-free and profitable business expansion into Lesotho. Reach out to us today for a comprehensive discussion on how we can facilitate your successful entrance and operation in this fascinating African market.
