Algeria vacation leave

Employees in Algeria generally accumulate 2.5 days of paid vacation leave per month of work, up to 30 days per year.

Algeria sick leave

Employers in Algeria usually need to pay employees who are absent from work starting from their first day of leave. Up to 15 days are paid at 50% of normal salary, then at 100% for longer sicknesses or those requiring hospitalization.

Parental leave in Algeria

Female employees in Algeria are entitled to 14 weeks of paid maternity leave. Male employees can take three days of paternity leave.

Terminations and severance in Algeria

Employees in Algeria are generally entitled to five days of notice per year with an employer upon termination, with an upper limit of 30 days.

Workers in their probation period are not entitled to this notice period, which can be six to 12 months long depending on the role.

Employees are also usually entitled to severance pay equivalent to 15 days of pay for every year with an employer above two years, with an upper limit of three months.

Navigating employee terminations and handling severance packages can be complicated for companies expanding overseas for the first time. Horizons’ Algeria PEO can mitigate risk for foreign companies and provide guidance through this process.

Taxation in Algeria

Employees in Algeria are taxed progressively on their incomes, with rates ranging from 0% to 35% depending on income level.

The corporate tax rate in Algeria is different for different types of companies, but for those engaged in mixed activities, the maximum rate is 26% of taxable profits.

Public healthcare in Algeria is funded via tax, but many employers do choose to offer private medical insurance to employees as part of their benefits packages.

Benefit management in Algeria

Employees in Algeria often expect benefits packages as part of their employment agreements, so you may need to set up a benefits management system when hiring in the country. But setting up and managing a benefits system in Algeria can be complicated, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the country’s unique regulations and procedures.

Horizons can help to significantly simplify this step of your Algeria expansion by providing benefit management outsourcing. Our team can advise you and handle the setup of your benefit scheme, enabling you to focus on expanding your organization with our Algeria PEO.

An Algeria PEO and an Algeria EOR are two types of companies which specialize in providing human resources services to businesses in Algeria.

The main difference between an Algeria PEO and an Algeria EOR is in the scope of their services.

Algeria PEOs provide a full range of HR services, including payroll, benefits administration, and employee recruiting—all under one roof as a co-employer. Engaging an Algeria PEO is essentially outsourcing your HR duties in Algeria.

Algeria EORs actually take over as the legal employer of your employees based abroad. Algeria EORs become responsible for labor compliance for your employees in Algeria.

At Horizons, we offer both PEO and EOR services in Algeria. Get in touch now and let us know what service you are seeking.

A PEO in Australia can feasibly hire both local and foreign nationals to work in Australia.

However, the ability of Horizons to sponsor your foreign national employee in Australia may be limited due to visa quotas practiced in many countries.

Contact us with your requirements and our Global Mobility team with review the case and get back to you within 2 business days.

In most cases, Horizons’ Australia PEO can hire & onboard your employee within 24 hours. The actual start date of the employee will depend on their notice period obligation to their previous employer as well as any relevant hiring rules in Australia.

It is possible to get a work visa in Australia. Horizons’ Global Mobility team is a dedicated team of work visa experts. They assess the details of each case to determine feasibility and costs before Horizons applies for the work visa on behalf of your employee. If the Global Mobility team determines that your case is feasible, the process is smooth and transparent. Visa spots in Australia are limited, however—get started today to secure your employees’ visa spot.
