Registro di terminacion di relacion laboral riba mercado laboral

Registration of termination of employment agreements on the labor market

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a great impact on the economy and labor markets around the world. Aruba is not an exception. The measures taken to control the virus resulted in many companies being obligated to halt (almost) all their economic activities. As a result, many employees were left unemployed. 

This situation has led to many questions from both employees and employers. For employees the frequently asked questions concerned their employment or the continued payment of their salary and their vacation days. While employers need to know how they can decrease the number of employees, so they can reduce their operational costs and survive this crisis.

During this period of insecurity, the Department of Labor and Investigation (DAO) has provided assistance to both employees and employers. DAO has shared important information on its website concerning the labor laws that remain in effect during this crisis. Labor unions and lawyer’s offices have also expressed their view publicly regarding the topic of the working relationship between employer and employee.

An employment agreement can be terminated along a number of legally determined routes and for a number of legally determined reasons. From the questions that DAO has received from both employees and employers it can be concluded that termination of employment agreements was for the most part based on mutual agreements.

DAO wishes to gather more information on the number of termination of agreements and especially in which matter these agreements came to an end as of January 1st, 2020.

DAO is requesting everyone whose employment agreement ended as of January 1st, 2020 to digitally register. Below you will find the link.
