Why hire talents from Djibouti

Djibouti, a burgeoning market in East Africa, presents a wealth of opportunities for international organizations seeking to expand their operations. A key factor in this growth is the country’s skilled workforce. According to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, Djibouti boasts a noteworthy literacy rate, demonstrating the potential for a capable and educated talent pool.

This impressive literacy rate in Djibouti serves as an indicator of a well-prepared workforce, ready to contribute effectively to global organizations. By tapping into this resource, your company can benefit from the diverse skill sets, innovative perspectives, and local expertise that Djiboutian talents bring to the table. As the demand for skilled professionals continues to rise, capitalizing on the strengths of Djibouti’s workforce will provide your organization with a competitive edge in the ever-evolving global market.

Sourcing talents from Djibouti

Navigating the talent acquisition landscape in Djibouti can be challenging, particularly for global companies unfamiliar with the local market. Traditional recruitment channels, such as job boards, local newspapers, and employment agencies, may prove insufficient in locating the right candidates to fulfill your organization’s specific needs.

Employment laws and regulations in Djibouti

Navigating the intricacies of employment laws and regulations in Djibouti is essential for global organizations looking to establish a successful presence in the country. A key aspect of this process involves adhering to the best practices for drafting employment contracts, which are typically recommended to be in French, the official language of Djibouti.

Probationary periods for indefinite-term contracts are allowed, with specific durations based on the employee’s role: 15 days for hourly employees, 1 month for monthly wage employees, and 3 months for supervisors, executives, and equivalents.

The standard work week in Djibouti is 48 hours. Employers may require workers to perform overtime work, within a limit of 5 hours per week and per worker, provided both the workers and the labor inspector are informed. Overtime work is remunerated at an increased rate specified by a collective agreement.

Understanding and complying with these employment laws and regulations is crucial for maintaining a successful and harmonious working environment in Djibouti. At Breedj, we take great care to ensure that our Djibouti RPO services adhere to all local labor laws, helping your organization maintain compliance and fostering a strong foundation for growth and success.

Employment termination in Djibouti

A thorough understanding of Djibouti’s employment termination policies is essential for organizations seeking to maintain compliance with local labor laws. Termination of employment may be invoked by the employer for various reasons, including personal reasons, economic reasons, serious misconduct as defined by the Labor Code, or through the utilization of technical unemployment provisions.

Notice periods must be observed when terminating employment contracts. General employees and laborers are entitled to a one-month notice period, while supervisors, managers, and similar positions require a three-month notice period.

Severance pay depends on the specific circumstances of the termination. In cases of termination without just reason, damages and interest payable can range from two to six months’ salary, depending on the size of the company. Special conditions apply to staff representatives, who may be entitled to 12 months’ salary if dismissed without the authorization of the labor inspectorate. However, if the dismissal is based on a real and serious reason, a labor tribunal may require the employer to pay compensation not exceeding one month’s salary.

At Breedj, we prioritize compliance with local labor laws when providing our RPO services, ensuring that your organization’s hiring and termination processes align with Djibouti’s legal requirements.
