  • Fixed-Term Agreements

    An agreement between an employer and employee where the employment has a fixed start and end date. This type of agreement can only be used if there is a genuine reason for the fixed term. For example, if the employee is hired to complete a particular project or fulfil the role of an employee on leave.

    The fixed-term agreement can be extended if circumstances change and the employer needs the fixed-term employee for longer. Employees on a fixed-term arrangement are entitled to the same minimum rights as permanent employees.
