Overview of Maldives

Maldives is in South Asia and has a population of 395,000. The capital city of the Maldives is Male which has a population of 140,000.

Maldives is the lowest country in the world. Its ground level is averaged at 1.5 meters (4 feet 11 inches), and its highest point, a certain spot in Villingili Island that stands at 2.3 meters (7 feet 7 inches), is the lowest on the planet. Because the country is low-lying, Maldivians worry about the possibility of it sinking, especially now that climate change continues to take effect.

When negotiating terms of an employment contract and offer letter with an employee in Maldives it may be useful to keep the following in mind:

Employment Contracts in Maldives

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