Fixed-Term Contracts

Fixed-term contracts are permitted in El Salvador but should state the duration of the work and the reason that it is fixed (e.g. the work is for a set project, to temporarily replace a Worker on maternity leave, etc.). They can be for a period of days, several months, or years depending on the need. If the contract is renewed, it may be deemed an indefinite contract.

Probationary Periods

Probationary periods are permitted in El Salvador and are usually no more than 30 days long. No notice or rationale is required to terminate during the probationary period. If the contract is not terminated during the probationary period, it is automatically deemed indefinite.


Workers recognize 11 public holidays. After 60 days of service, Workers are entitled to a day off with double pay for each holiday. If a Worker is required to work on a holiday, they are entitled to a different paid day off in lieu within 30 days.
