Gambia – Employer of Record

Employment Contracts in Gambia
In Gambia, employment contracts can be oral or written, but it is best practice to put a strong, written contract in place, in English, which spells out the terms of the employee’s compensation, benefits, and termination requirements. An offer letter and employment contract in Gambia should always state the salary and any compensation amounts in Gambian Dalasi rather than a foreign currency. The employment contract template is part of the service with Globalization Partners; no need to draft a separate template if you use our employer of record and PEO service in Gambia.
