Statutory labor laws in Sierra Leone

Understanding Sierra Leone’s statutory labor laws is crucial for the smooth operation of your business. These regulations cover an array of employee rights and benefits:

Employee Probation Period: Sierra Leonean labor laws typically specify a probation period ranging from one to three months. This period can be mutually extended by the employer and the employee for a more in-depth assessment. During this time, both parties can evaluate the viability of a long-term employment relationship.

Annual Leave Entitlements: As per Sierra Leonean law, employees are entitled to a minimum of 12 working days of paid annual leave after a full year of continuous service. This leave is exclusive of national holidays and provides employees with essential downtime to recharge.

Maternity Leave: The labor laws in Sierra Leone allow for 12 weeks of paid maternity leave for female employees. This period can be divided into pre- and post-birth leave, ensuring the health and well-being of both the mother and the newborn.

Paternity Leave: While Sierra Leone doesn’t legally mandate paternity leave, progressive companies often provide this benefit as part of their employment package.

Sick Leave: Employees in Sierra Leone are commonly entitled to a stipulated number of paid sick days each year, which is granted upon presentation of a medical certificate.

With Breedj as your EOR partner, you can rest assured that every aspect of these labor laws is adhered to, thereby safeguarding you from potential legal complications.

Social security in Sierra Leone

Participation in Sierra Leone’s social security scheme is compulsory for both employers and employees. The scheme mandates a 10% contribution from the employer and a 5% contribution from the employee, amounting to a 15% total contribution to Sierra Leone’s National Social Security Trust. 

These contributions offer a safety net for employees, covering various life events such as retirement, disability, and work-related injuries. Navigating this area can be tricky due to its legal complexities. 

However, Breedj ensures smooth sailing by managing all your social security responsibilities—be it registration, contribution calculations, or scheduled payments.
