New Exit Code

If the service contract of an employee is terminated, it should immediately be reported to the SSI. This notification must be made by the employer or the employer’s representative. When notifying SSI, the termination needs to be reported with the correct exit code. 

Why is the Correct Exit Code Important?

The most appropriate exit code should be entered in the SSI system to notify all terminations. The exit code determines whether the job is terminated by the employee or the employer. This reveals the parties’ obligations to each other. Some rights such as severance pay, notice pay and unemployment benefits are determined based on the reason and associated code. In addition, the correct exit code must be reported in order not to be subject to criminal proceedings.

New Exit Code

With the Circular No. 2020/21 published on 19 June 2020 by the General Directorate of Pension Services, which is affiliated with SSI, the code “26- Termination with Disciplinary Board Decision” has been changed to “26- Termination due to Absenteeism”.

In case of employee absenteeism before the code change, while the exit notification is made by the 29-Employer Code of Conduct in Conformity with the Code of Ethics and Goodwill, the exit notification will be required by selecting the “26- Termination Due to Absenteeism” code.
