Worker Classifications

There are no specific Worker classifications in Lebanon.

Fixed-Term Contracts

Fixed-term contracts are permitted in Lebanon for a maximum of two years. If the contract is renewed, it is deemed indefinite. Termination of a fixed term contract prior to the expiration of the term is considered abusive; a court will determine indemnities that must be paid to the prejudiced party.

Probationary Periods

Probationary periods are permitted for indefinite contracts for a maximum of three months. During the probationary period, notice is not required to terminate the employment relationship.


Workers recognize between 8 and 15 paid public holidays in Lebanon. Work performed on a public holiday is generally payable at 150% or a paid day off in lieu.


After one year of service, Workers are entitled to 15 days of paid vacation. That number increases based on length of service: 1 - 5 years of service - 15 days of vacation; 5 - 10 years of service - 17 days of vacation; 10 - 15 years of service - 19 days of vacation; 15+ years of service - 21 days of vacation.

Sick Leave

Upon presentation of a medical certificate, Workers are entitled to paid sick leave depending upon their length of service: 3 months - 2 years of service - one-half of a month with full pay and half of a month with half pay; 2 - 4 years of service - 1 month of full pay and 1 month with half pay; 4 - 6 years of service - 1.5 months with full pay and 1.5 months with half pay; 6 - 10 years of service - 2 months with full pay and 2 months with half pay; and 10+ years of service - 2.5 months with full pay and 2.5 months with half pay.

Working Hours

A standard workday is Monday through Friday, from approximately 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Working hours must not exceed 48 hours per week. Workers are entitled to a one-hour break after five hours of work and a weekly rest day, which generally falls on Sundays.


Overtime is usually reserved for non-managerial positions and payable at 150%. Some organizations choose to offer overtime pay to all Workers.

Mandatory Bonuses

There are no mandatory bonuses in Lebanon.


Except in limited cases such as misconduct, termination requires a cause, an end-of-service indemnity, and notice based on the Worker's length of service: 0-3 years of service - one month's notice; 3-6 years of service - 2 months' notice; 6-12 years of service - 3 months' notice; and 12+ years of service - 4 months of service. The notice period may be paid in lieu. Workers with at least one year of service are entitled to an end-of-service indemnity in accordance with the applicable National Social Security Fund laws. This indemnity is generally equal to one month's salary for each year of service. An employment agreement may also be terminated by mutual agreement.


Except in cases of misconduct or breach of contract on the part of the employer, Workers are required to provide the same notice as required by the Employer (or payment in lieu of notice) based on their years of service.
