AMMONNEWS - Employers may not terminate open-ended employment contracts pursuant to Defense Order No. 6 of 2020 and all subsequent instructions issued thereunder, the Ministry of Labor said on Sunday.

With regard to fixed-term contracts, the employer is obligated to renew them for a period equal to the term of the last contract or until the end of the Defense Law (whichever ends after the other), provided that the contract has expired on April 30th, or after that, and that the contract was previously renewed 3 or more times, Muhammad Ziyoud, the ministry spokesman explained.

He added that any employee laid off in violation of the said instructions will have to be reinstated by the employer, otherwise, legal action will be taken against the employer in accordance with Defense Order No. 6 of 2020.

Ziyoud urged employees to lodge their grievances via the Hemayeh.jo platform or call the ministry's hotlines, adding that complaints can be dealt with either secretly or openly depending on the complainant's desire.
