A fixed term contract is a contract which is put in place for a temporary period and has a definite duration or purpose.  The end of the contract is determined by an objective condition such as;

  • The arrival of a specific date
  • The completion of a task / project
  • The occurrence of a specific event

For a contract to be legally considered as a fixed term contract, there must be a written agreement which outlines the objective provision which will bring the contract to an end (as above). The contract must also be signed by both the Employer and Employee.
