Employment in Malawi

In Malawi, employment contracts can be oral or written, but it is best practice to put a strong, written contract in place, in Chichewa, which spells out the terms of the employee’s compensation, benefits, and termination requirements. An offer letter and employment contract in Malawi should always state the salary and any compensation amounts in Malawian Kwacha rather than a foreign currency.
