Employment in Algeria

The Algerian economy is represented by a concentration of the workforce in secondary and tertiary sectors, despite a large part of the industrial sector being dependent on oil and gas resources. Algeria is a member of the OPEC (The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) and its economy relies heavily on hydrocarbon production and trade. The oil and gas industry does not employ a significant workforce, which explains why the majority of the working population operate in the services sector, which in turn contributes to diversifying the economy.

Employees in Algeria are entitled to vacation, sick and parental leave. From a termination perspective, they are generally entitled to 5 days’ notice per year with a maximum limit of 30 days. Taxation rates vary – individuals are taxed between 0% and 35% on their income based on their revenue, whereas for corporates the taxation rate differs depending on the industry type, but up to a maximum limit of 26%.

When recruiting locals or hiring expats in Algeria, corporate benefits are usually scrutinised by prospective candidates as part of the employment package being offered. Working alongside an experienced partner such as Africa HR Solutions will allow you to devise an appropriate and competitive benefit scheme, whilst taking into consideration the country’s regulations and customary procedures.
