The employer and employee can terminate the employment contract. It can be terminated if both parties agree on its termination, the contract expired, work was completed or the employee died or became disabled, which must be proven by a medical report.
Section 21 of the Jordan Labor code deals with termination of employment. According to this section, a contract is considered terminated if:
- Both parties are in agreement to terminate it.
- The contract has expired, or the work is completed.
- Death, or if the worker is incapable of performing the work due to disability or disease, provided this is certified by a medical authority.
The party that initiates the termination is required to provide a written termination notice to the other party at least 30 days before the exit date, which cannot be withdrawn unless both parties agree to its withdrawal.
