Uzbekistan Introduction

Uzbekistan is a landlocked country in central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, and Turkmenistan. The country is comprised of 12 regions, Tashkent City, and one autonomous republic named Karakalpakstan. Since the country has giant power-generation facilities left from the Soviet era and an ample supply of natural gas, Uzbekistan has become the largest electricity producer in Central Asia.

Employment Terms

The minimum wage in Uzbekistan is UZS 920,000 per month, and a standard workweek is 40 hours over 5 or 6 days per week. Overtime work is regulated by the employment contract or collective agreements, and is paid at around 200% of the regular salary.

Types of Leave

Parental Leave

Employees are entitled to paid maternity leave of 126 days, where 70 days are usually taken before the due date and 56 days are taken after the birth. This leave is paid at 100% by social security.

There are no statutory requirements for paternity leave, and parents can also take adoption leave.

Sick Leave

Employees can take sick leave paid by the employer, either to care for themselves or for a sick family member. The payment for this leave is paid between 60%-80% of the regular salary.

Paid Leave

There are 9 public holidays in Uzbekistan, and employees are entitled to at least 15 days of paid time off each year (after completing 6 months at their company).

Termination Process


The termination process depends on the employment contract or collective agreement and reason for termination. If the employee is a member of a trade union, the employer has to receive approval before terminating the contract.

Notice Period

Notice periods for terminations depend on the reason for termination, and payment can be made in lieu of notice.

  • Redundancy = 2 months of notice
  • Unqualified or health reasons that impede ability to carry out duties = 2 weeks of notice
  • Change in company’s ownership = 2 months of notice
  • Misconduct or performance = 3 days of notice

Severance Pay

The average severance payment for terminations is equal to 1 month of wages for every 2 years of work at the company.

How Remofirst employs in Uzbekistan

It can be prohibitively expensive to establish an entity in every country you want to hire talent in, so Remofirst will hire and pay your employee on your behalf while you manage their daily duties. Remofirst will handle formal HR procedures and employment contracts that adhere to local laws, so that you can simply approve invoices via our platform. When you work with an Employer of Record (EOR) you can compliantly hire the best employees around the world.

How employees in Uzbekistan get paid
Your employee's hours, time off, holidays, bonuses, and commissions are automatically calculated into payroll. Remofirst will invoice you in either US Dollars (USD), Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), Canadian Dollars (CAD), Australian Dollars (AUD), or Singapore Dollars (SGD) around the 15th of each month to make sure your employees in Uzbekistan are paid on time in Uzbekistani Soʻm (UZS). To make it even easier, you can summarize your entire global team's salaries to aggregate them into one payment (instead of many individual payments).
Full-time Employees vs Global Contractors

Unlike full-time employees, contractors work on projects with multiple companies at a given time and are technically self-employed. Full-time employees are solely focused on their employer and usually receive benefits (such as health insurance, equity or stock options, and time off) as an additional form of compensation. While it can be cheaper to work with international contractors instead of paying benefits to a full-time employee, you run the risk of misclassification. It's recommended to work with an EOR for contractor onboarding and payments, so you can know that your international contractors are paid compliantly and on time.

Dependable support for employees
Whenever the employee or employer has a question about benefits, Visas, or anything else related to international employment in Uzbekistan, they can speak with our customer support team to get answers from our team of experts.
