Employment Contracts in Jordan
In Jordan, employment contracts can be oral or written, but it is best practice to put a strong, written contract in place, in Arabic, which spells out the terms of the employee’s compensation, benefits, and termination requirements. An offer letter and employment contract in Jordan should always state the salary and any compensation amounts in Jordanian Dinar 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 Jordan.
