Benefits & Insurance in Israel

Old age insurance is one of the most important branches of Israel’s social security system, and it is designed to ensure that residents in Israel receive a regular monthly income as they grow older. Any Israeli resident who was born in Israel or first immigrated before the age of 62 for males and before the age of retirement for women is entitled for an old-age pension if he or she meets the eligibility criteria.

Disability Pension

A disability pension is paid to those who are unable to work, or whose earning capacity is reduced due to their medical condition.

Unemployment Insurance

The National Insurance Institute provides a source of income to unemployed people throughout the duration of their unemployment. Unemployment benefits are granted to salaried workers who have registered as unemployed with the Employment Service (labor exchange) and have reported to the Employment Service to hunt for job.

Work injury insurance

Work injury insurance is intended to pay insured persons who are injured at work for the loss of income they would experience during the time they are unable to work following the accident. As a result, the National Insurance Institute gives them an injury allowance for up to three months.

  • Notice – Both employer and employee must provide written notice before terminating a contract

Employment Contract in Israel

Employment Contract

In Israel, there are two sorts of contracts: indefinite duration and fixed-term contracts.

The most common sort of contract is one with an indefinite length. It means that you will work for a corporation “at-will” for an extended period of time under specific terms and circumstances. After finishing a task or time period, your employer will not cancel your contract.

Fixed-term contracts require you to work for a set period of time or on a specific project. For freelance and seasonal labor, this is a frequent format. When the time limit expires or the project is completed, the contract comes to an end.

Probation Period

New employees can work a suitable probationary period of between one and 12 months depending on the terms of their contract of employment or collective agreement.

Types of Leaves in Israel

Sick Leave

Sick leave accrues at a rate of 1.5 days each month, up to a total of 90 days. Upon return, the employee must provide a medical certificate from a medical professional.

Maternity Leave

Following the completion of one year of employment, female employees are entitled to 26 weeks of maternity leave; the employee can take up to seven weeks of leave before the expected due date of the child and the remainder after the birth. If an employee is eligible, Israel’s Social Security system pays for maternity leave, which typically consists of 15 weeks of fully paid leave and 11 weeks of unpaid leave.

Paternity Leave

An employee is permitted to remain away from work for up to 24 hours after a partner goes into labor and up to 24 hours after the birth on the basis of earned sick leave. Spouses are entitled to paid paternity leave for the first five days following the birth of their kid.

Bereavement Leave

In Israel, if a member of one’s immediate family dies, the employee is entitled to up to seven calendar days of paid leave to mourn their loss. After three months of service, the company completely compensates the employee for bereavement leave.
