Trial Employment Period

In Argentina, the trial period for employment spans a duration of three months 💼.

Throughout this initial three-month employment period, if either the employee or employer chooses to end the work agreement without a specific reason, it is not required for the employer to provide severance pay. However, the employer must provide the employee with a 15-day notification.

End of Employment

In Argentina, employers are required to deliver a written justification when terminating an employee, excluding cases of mutual agreement 📝.

An employee is not eligible for severance pay if their employment is terminated for valid reasons. These valid reasons might involve employee misconduct, economic factors, or the employee's inability to execute necessary tasks.

Rather than providing notice, employers in Argentina have the option to pay employees an amount equivalent to the notice period.

The duration of the notice period in Argentina is contingent upon the employee's service length:

  • Service of less than 5 years: one month's notice.
  • Continuous service of over 5 years: two months' notice.
  • Employees who are terminated without cause are entitled to various forms of severance pay, which includes:
  • A compensation equal to a month's salary for every year of service or any period exceeding three months, calculated based on the employee's top monthly salary.
  • Compensation for any leftover days in the month if the employee is terminated prior to the month's end.
  • Compensation for unused vacation days 🏖️.
  • A proportional compensation for the 13th-month salary.
  • Special compensation for employees on sick leave 🤒.
  • Special compensation for employees on maternity leave 👶.

If you're looking to work in Argentina, whether it's for paid or unpaid work, you'll need to secure a work visa. 📝 Working as a tourist on a 90-day tourist visa stamp is strictly not permitted.

The company you'll be working for should be a local corporate body based in Argentina, which will sponsor your work permits. Moreover, the organization should be authorized to employ international workers and should be registered with the National Immigration Office (Direccion Nacional de Migraciones) or the National Immigrant Sponsors Registrar. 🏢

Dealing with visa or residency-related procedures in Argentina can be quite complex and document-intensive, characterized by a high level of bureaucracy. 📚 The bulk of the paperwork is usually taken care of by the Argentinian employer, the company's branch office in Argentina, or an Argentinian immigration lawyer.
