    I have employees who stole money from the business. My lawyer and the labour ministry friends told me to just pay him, fire him and sleep peacefully in the night. There are other ways to fire him without paying liquidation but your business has to be legal.

    Just pay the money and get rid of him.

    Does the employee know your business is illegal? If not just ask a notary to prepare a descargo, pay his liquidation and make him sign the descargo before paying. Then you are safe. Even if not, It is very easy to calculate how much you owe him for liquidation. Just get that calculated, print the calculation and make him sign on that.

    We prepare the calculation using the goverment webpage https://calculo.mt.gob.do/ and make q copy for them, its been the best thing we do, also they sign the Descargo before we pay the check.

    As a follow-up question. The ministry of labor doesnt list today as a public holiday nor does the resources on the internet. Do you all pay your people double salaries for working today?

    Is the same website used to calculate severance for a casual employee such as a gardener who works only one day per week? Never more than 8 hours per day and never on holidays.

    As far as I know, today is just a normal Sunday - just more very loud music about "Mami" where I live.

    You mean Mother's Day? It's not a holiday.

    My wife believes he probably knows you are illegal and actually wants to get fired so he can take you for a ride. She says get yourself legal and once all the paperwork is done....etc, then start taking note of his absences ....etc, and record them with the local labour branch. Once you have enough documented evidence then fire his ass. You will be required to pay some severance but much less than normal. My wife has been in business here for 27 years, and has only fired three people, but she has forced many to quit.

    Get a lawyer to draft up an agreement on what the liquidation is and that the employee cannot come back on you for addition money. Get the employee to sign it. Done. He will be more than happy to have money and he will move on.
    Pretty much. Like the commercial says "It's my money, and I want it now!"
