Comoros Compensation Laws
The minimum wage in Comoros is 55,000 Comorian francs (KMF). Market standards for your employees’ salaries will vary based on their roles and industries.
You are required to provide equal pay for employees in a similar position and seniority level without discrimination based on race, color, sex, supposed state of health, religion, political opinion, social origin, or national identity. These characteristics are prohibited as grounds for different remuneration, benefits, or working conditions.
For night work, overtime, or work on rest days or holidays, employees are entitled to additional compensation by law. Pay rates for these situations must meet these minimum requirements:
- Additional 40 percent of salary for work on rest days and holidays
- Additional 15 percent of salary for the first eight hours exceeding the 40-hour weekly limit
- Additional 30 percent of salary for more than eight hours of overtime
- Additional 40 percent of salary for overtime beyond 16 hours — up to 60 hours in a week
Guaranteed Benefits in Comoros
Each worker is entitled to two and a half days of vacation leave for each month they work for your company. Workers who meet specific criteria — including employees with over 15 years of seniority, women who are heads of households, and young employees under 18 — are entitled to three days’ leave per month of service. With a doctor’s certification, workers can take up to six months of sick leave.
Women are entitled to suspend work for up to 14 weeks after giving birth and should receive their regular salary rate throughout their maternity leave. For 15 months after giving birth, the employee also has a right to nursing leave during workdays, which is up to one hour per day to nurse.
Comoros Benefits Management
You’re responsible for providing all guaranteed benefits and ensuring your company is registered with social security. You must also withhold the appropriate amount from each employee’s paycheck for income taxes and report withholdings.
In addition to these required benefits and compensation, consider providing other services to create a more attractive employee package. A competitive benefits plan that meets or exceeds the market standard can draw top candidates to your company’s positions and ensure your current employees have an optimal work environment. Some additional benefits you can consider providing include:
- Food vouchers and assistance
- Transportation assistance
- Bonuses and awards
- Relocation assistance
When you work with Globalization Partners, you’ll get streamlined services and local expertise to offer your employees the best benefits packages. Our team will put together packages for you, balancing compliance with regulations and market standards while meeting your budget requirements.
Restrictions for Benefits and Compensation
The country’s minimum wage is one of the basic requirements for fair employment practices. Other regulations for Comoros benefits management do not explicitly outline additional restrictions. Ensure you stay updated on any changes to rules regarding minimum wage, leave policies, and benefits requirements to remain compliant.
