Abstract: Retirement is the process through which an employee exit an organization upon completion of his/her term of service. It is a natural, inevitable part of the employment cycle that every public servant or academic employees have to go through. The legal regime of retirement and method used to calculate the retirement’s benefits vary from country to country depending on each country’s socio-legal conditions. Retirement is a transitional process whereby the retiree transits from one role to another and as such has important legal, economic, personal, and social dimensions. The main purpose of this article is to study the legal regime of retirement that regulates the retirement of academic employees under the Afghanistan legal system. This article will enrich our understanding of the legal aspects of the retirement of academic employees. The researcher is going to employ a descriptive method of analysis. This article has found that Afghanistan’s legal system subjects academic employees to the same legal regime as other public servants. This research recommends that Afghanistan, instead of classic retirement, should institute a multi-stage retirement system for the academic employees.
