What should an employment contract in Morocco include? 

The following details should be included in every Moroccan employment contract:

  • Personal information of both the employer and employee.
  • Job title and description outlining the specific duties and responsibilities of the employee.
  • Working hours including the number of hours per week, the days of the week the employee is expected to work, and any overtime policies.
  • Employee’s compensation, including their salary or hourly rate, bonuses, and benefits.
  • Clauses to protect the employer’s confidential information and trade secrets.
  • Any severance pay, and what exactly qualifies as “cause” for dismissal.

Both parties should carefully read the contract before signing it to make sure they are aware of all the terms and conditions.

What types of employment contracts exist in Morocco?

The most typical types of employment contracts in Morocco are:

1. Employee contract

The different types of employment agreements in Morocco are as follows:

  • Indefinite-term employment contract: Under this type of agreement, the employment relationship continues unless and until it is formally ended by one or both parties. An employment contract provides the worker with more job security and usually requires the employer to pay the worker severance or notice payments in the event of termination.
  • Fixed-term employment contract:  A fixed-term employment contract is a contract that is valid for a specified period or a specific project. The contract terminates automatically if the project is finished before the end date. The employment period in a fixed-term contract is always limited in duration. When a contract’s term ends, a company can either extend the agreement or end it altogether.

2. Author’s contract

The terms of publication or distribution of the work and the author’s compensation are specified in this agreement. Moroccan law mandates that an author’s contract contain the following information: the title of the work, the scope of the rights being granted, the period of the contract, the author’s compensation, and the specific obligations of both parties.

3. Outsourcing contract

This agreement is between a business and an outside party who will provide work for that business in exchange for payment. In addition, this type of contract is also often used for services such as cleaning, security, and maintenance. The contract should outline the specific services or tasks the service provider must perform.

How to hire employees in Morocco?

In Morocco, employers must give their employees at least the statutory minimum wage and any other benefits to which they are entitled. Before a company may hire anyone in Morocco, the company must first register as a legal entity. 

You’ll need to register your business with the Moroccan government and apply for a tax ID in accordance with the rules set down by the country’s authorities.
