Employment laws and regulations in Cape Verde

Employee Probation Period in Cape Verde

Understanding the importance of a well-designed probation period is crucial for both employers and employees. In Cape Verde, the law allows for a maximum probationary period of 60 days for regular positions and up to 90 days for those in managerial roles. Breedj’s RPO services are equipped with data analytics tools that provide in-depth insights during this critical period, thereby helping organizations make well-informed, data-backed decisions about extending full-time offers to new hires.

Working Hours in Cape Verde

Navigating through the complexities of labor laws can be daunting, particularly when dealing with working hours. In Cape Verde, labor laws prescribe a 44-hour workweek, usually spread over 5.5 days. To ease this process, Breedj’s RPO services include state-of-the-art time-tracking software solutions. This ensures you maintain complete compliance with local laws without diverting attention away from your core business activities.

Overtime in Cape Verde

When operating in Cape Verde, organizations must adhere to strict regulations regarding overtime work, including an additional 50% payment over the standard hourly rate. To assist your organization in adhering to these regulations, Breedj’s RPO solutions incorporate automated tracking and payroll systems. These systems are designed to accurately account for overtime work and calculate appropriate compensation, ensuring a frictionless experience for both employer and employee.

Employment termination in Cape Verde

General Termination of Employment Policies in Cape Verde

The process of employment termination is fraught with legal intricacies that require careful navigation. A misstep can result in substantial legal repercussions. To prevent such occurrences, Breedj offers comprehensive consultancy services, from providing legally sound termination documents to guiding you through every step of the process. These services ensure that both parties experience a respectful and ethical exit from the employment relationship.

Notice Period in Cape Verde

Adequately handling the notice period is another critical aspect of employment termination. In Cape Verde, the notice period can range from 15 days for shorter employment durations to 60 days for long-term employees. Breedj helps you navigate this tricky landscape by offering expertise in creating and delivering legally compliant notice letters. This ensures that both the employer and employee can transition through this period as smoothly as possible.

Severance Pay in Cape Verde

Calculating and disbursing severance pay in accordance with Cape Verdean labor laws is the final step in the employment termination process. These laws generally dictate that the severance package is based on the employee’s years of service to the organization. Breedj simplifies this complex process by providing specialized RPO services that include accurately calculating severance pay, thus ensuring that both the employer and the employee’s legal rights are fully protected.
