Employment in Zambia

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