Employment laws and regulations in Lesotho

Employee Probation Period in Lesotho

In Lesotho, new hires are usually subjected to a probation period that typically lasts three months but can be extended up to six months. During this time, employers have the flexibility to evaluate the suitability and skills of the employee in a real-work environment, thus making informed decisions about long-term employment.

Working Hours in Lesotho

In Lesotho, the workweek is conventional, comprising 45 working hours distributed over five days. The law mandates at least one rest day per week, generally aligned with local cultural norms, usually falling on a Sunday. This gives employees much-needed downtime and aligns well with local traditions and lifestyles.

Overtime in Lesotho

Overtime in Lesotho is legally permissible, but it comes with stipulations. Employees must be compensated at 1.5 times their standard hourly wage for any overtime work. Additionally, it is crucial to ensure that the total overtime hours do not exceed 11 hours in a week, safeguarding compliance with local labor laws and employee well-being.

Employment termination in Lesotho

General Termination of Employment Policies in Lesotho

When it comes to employment termination, the laws in Lesotho distinguish between fixed-term and indefinite-term contracts. For fixed-term contracts, the employment naturally ends when the contract expires. For indefinite-term contracts, there needs to be a valid, well-documented reason for termination, and it often involves a procedural approach that may include disciplinary actions.

Notice Period in Lesotho

In Lesotho, the notice period for terminating an indefinite-term contract generally lasts one month. However, the notice period can be waived if the termination is on grounds of gross misconduct, protecting employers from protracted engagements with erring employees.

Severance Pay in Lesotho

Upon termination, the employee is generally entitled to severance pay that equals at least one week’s wages for each year of continuous service. This is over and above any other benefits that may have accrued, such as unused vacation days, thereby providing a financial cushion for the departing employee.
