Employment laws and regulations in Kenya

Employment laws and regulations in Kenya are designed to protect the rights of workers and ensure fair treatment in the workplace. As a global organization operating in Kenya, it’s essential to understand the country’s employment laws and regulations to comply with local labor laws. For instance, the Employment Act governs the terms and conditions of employment in Kenya, including employment contracts, probationary periods, working hours, and overtime.

Employment contracts in Kenya should be written in language easily comprehended by the worker, and express that the contract is for a probationary period of up to twelve months. The contract should include the recommended language for employment contracts in Kenya, which is provided by the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection.

In terms of working hours, the workweek in Kenya is generally 52 hours per week and 60 hours per week for night workers. Overtime work must be compensated at a rate of at least 150% of the wage for normal working hours, and the Wages Order limits overtime plus time worked in normal hours per week to 116 hours in any period of two consecutive weeks. There are also specific provisions for night workers, who are allowed to work up to 144 hours per week with a limit of 12 hours of overtime.

By partnering with Breedj for Kenya RPO services, you can rest assured that our recruitment specialists are well-versed in local labor laws and regulations. We guarantee compliance with local employment laws when sourcing and hiring local talents, ensuring that your organization remains compliant with Kenyan employment regulations.

Employment termination in Kenya

Employment termination in Kenya is regulated by the Employment Act, which sets out the rules and procedures for terminating employment contracts. A worker may be terminated after serving due notice or paying in lieu of notice. The length of the notice period depends on the type of employment contract. For example, workers on daily contracts may be terminated at the end of the working day without prior notice, while workers during the probationary period must be given at least seven days’ notice (or payment in lieu of notice).

The length of the notice period may also be set in an employment contract by mutual consent of the employer and worker, provided that the period is longer than that provided by the Act. However, the notice should be written in language that is easily comprehended by the worker, and if necessary, explained orally in a language that the worker can understand.

It’s important to note that there is no provision for severance pay in legislation for reasons other than redundancy in Kenya. Redundancy refers to the loss of employment by involuntary means through no fault of a worker, involving the termination of employment at the initiative of the employer, where the services of a worker are superfluous.

Severance pay in Kenya, paid by the employer, is equivalent to 15 days’ basic wages for each completed year of employment. By partnering with Breedj for Kenya RPO services, you can ensure that your organization complies with local employment termination policies. Our recruitment specialists have a deep understanding of local labor laws and can help you navigate the process of employment termination in Kenya.
